‘From Monday, 21st October, 2019, inbound traffic (movement) from Magboro-Punch would be closed and diverted onto the Shagamu bound carriageway, thereby narrowing the Lagos and Shagamu bound traffic into two (2) lanes on the Sagamu bound carriageway respectively, to enable the commencement of reconstruction and rehabilitation work within the 1.3km stretch’, Akinbiyi said.

‘In the light of the foregoing, the motoring public is hereby admonished to be patient, maintain lane discipline, drive cautiously, avoid driving in a direction prohibited by traffic law (One Way), cooperate and show understanding with Traffic Managers as they ply the diversion route’.

‘In addition, flash lights would be displayed at night and provide emergency response crew on standby, just as response time would be minimised by well-established lines of communication among various agencies involved in the operation’.
