LASG announces 36-hour traffic diversion on Island-Iyana Oworo bound carriageway



The Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Mr Oluwaseun Osiyemi, has announced a 36-hour traffic diversion on the Island-Oworo-bound carriageway.

Osiyemi, in a statement on Tuesday in Lagos, said this was in continuation of the ongoing repair works on the Third Mainland Bridge by the Federal Ministry of Works.

According to Osiyemi, the Island-Iyana Oworo-bound lane will be closed to vehicular traffic from 12.00 a.m on March 6 till 12.00 noon on March 7.

“Consequently, motorists plying this route are advised to use the alternative routes previously provided during this period.

“Kindly note that the Iyana-Oworo inwards Island bound carriageway will remain open to motorists heading to the Island during this period.

“The initial traffic diversion arrangements on the bridge will return after this 36 hour closure,” he said.

Thanking Lagosians for their continuous patience and understanding, Osiyemi further appealed for continued cooperation with the traffic management officials deployed to the axis.

He said this was necessary in order to minimise discomfort during this closure.
