Users of the ever busy Lagos-Ibadan Expressway may be in for additional groaning moments as the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has announced a partial closure of another section of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

Clement Oladele, Ogun sector commander of FRSC, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.

He said the measure is necessary to enable Julius Berger Nigeria PLC begin rehabilitation work on the 1.3 kilometers stretch of the expressway from Magboro to PUNCH.

He said the section of the road will be partially shut to traffic from Monday, October 21, 2019, to January 31, 2020.

On September 2, there was a partial closure of the Lagos end of the expressway for the ongoing reconstruction work on the 600-meters stretch between Ojodu Berger and the beginning of Kara bridge.

This has worsened the traffic situation on the road known to be one of the busiest in the country.

Some residents of Ogun working in Lagos have lamented over how a journey which should not take more than 30 minutes end up taking hours while some religious organisations have temporarily relocated as a result of the partial closure of the road which is supposed to end on November 1.

In his statement, Oladele said the forthcoming rehabilitation will cause a temporary diversion of the Lagos bound traffic to the Sagamu carriageway.

“This temporary diversion of traffic will transfer the Lagos inbound traffic to the same carriageway conveying traffic outward Lagos,” he said.

“Thereby making both the traffic inward and outward Lagos accommodated on the same section of the expressway within the 1.3 kilometers stretch of the road from Magboro to Punch in Ogun state.”

The sector commander advised motorists to take note of the development and plan their trips by allotting more time to their trips in view of the construction work.

He also warned those who do not have regards for the law, saying: “Motorists are also enjoined to observe lane discipline and avoid driving against traffic, as violators risk impoundment of their vehicles and liable to payment of N50,000 naira traffic fine.”
