LASG announces diversion at Alakija for Lagos–Badagry Carriageway repairs



The Lagos State Government says it will divert traffic at Alakija Intersection for repair works from Sept.1 till November 2022.

The diversion is for the continuation of rehabilitation of the Lagos–Badagry Expressway.

The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, made this known in a statement in Lagos on Tuesday.

Oladeinde explained that alternative routes had been mapped out and would be repaired to enable seamless vehicular movement.

He stated that motorists inbound Badagry could make use of the service lane to access the diversion points at Festac 1st gate or Agboju 2nd gate to link 2nd Avenue inwards Alakija to reach their desired destinations.

He urged motorists going beyond Festac Town to utilise the diversion into the main carriageway after Agboju (2nd Gate) onto the flyover bridge or exit the interchange bridge to connect to Abule Ado to continue their journey.

“Motorists heading towards Abule Ado, Alakija, Old Ojo Road and Mile 2 would be diverted into Dantata to connect the Interchange Bridge and continue on the flyover towards Mile 2 on the main carriageway or exit into the service lane after the bridge at Oluti.

“Similarly, motorists on the service lane could connect Old Ojo Road via Alakija Roundabout while those on the Toll lane towards Oluti/Old Ojo Road axis are to use the flyover exit at Oluti opening and connect Old Ojo Road.

“Motorists on the Lagos-bound service lane going to Abule Ado are advised to use the opening at Dantata to access the main carriageway and ascend the interchange bridge to make a U-turn and continue their journey inbound Abule Ado/Trade Fair,” Oladeinde said.

He gave assurance that the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) officials would be deployed to the affected routes to minimise inconveniences.

Oladeinde said the officials would ease traffic flow during the course of the construction.
