The Lagos State Government has said it will partially shut traffic on Dopemu Road in Agege area of the state for a duration of three months.

In a statement on Sunday, the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde disclosed that the diversion which commences by 10pm on Friday, January 21, 2022, is for the rehabilitation and upgrade of Babajide Sanwo-Olu Road.

Oladeinde said the repair works will be executed in three phases, adding that the first phase of the project will focus on Ipaja Road to Adealu Street junction which will last for three months.

The Commissioner assured that alternative routes have been mapped by the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) to enhance effective control of vehicular movement along the axis during the duration of the construction.

He further advised motorists inbound Dopemu Bridge from Iyana Ipaja/Alagba axis to go through Ipaja Road to connect Oyewole Street into Seriki Street to link Kolawole and Adebambo Streets in order to access Adealu Road for their desired destination.

Motorists heading towards Dopemu Bridge from Ipaja (Oke-Koto) are implored to utilise Markaz Road to connect Awori Street and link Sarumi Alawo Street/Oniwaya and Surulere to continue their journey or alternately go through Alfa Nla from Old Ipaja Road to connect Oniwaya/Surulere axis to reach Dopemu Bridge.

Oladeinde reaffirmed that the suggested alternative routes are in motorable condition and will not pose any difficulties to motorists plying the routes.

He assured that LASTMA personnel will be at the diversion routes for efficient traffic management, while lauding Lagosians for their perseverance through the myriad of constructions ongoing across the state.
