Lagos State Government will divert traffic on Tuesday September 20, 2022 at the Maryland/Mende Underpass.

Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, the Commissioner for Transportation, stated in a statement on Sunday that the move is to ensure that the construction of the Opebi/Ojota link bridge is not hampered.

 

Dr. Frederic Oladeinde announced the diversion via a statement obtained by The Herald “In continuation of the Opebi/Ojota link bridge construction, the Lagos State Government will be diverting traffic from Maryland/Mende Underpass from Tuesday 20th September 2022.”

Oladeinde also advised motorists heading to the axis’s inner streets to use Mobolaji Bank Anthony to access Emmanuel, Aderibigbe Shitta, and Adeoye Adeyemi Streets, while those heading to Mende and its environs should use Mende Street to connect Ajose Street and connect Oki Lane to continue their journey.

Similarly, the Commissioner stated that due to unforeseen circumstances, the repairs of a section of the Lagos Bound Lane at the Iyana Era/Badagry Expressway scheduled for September 17th have been postponed until further notice, adding that a new date will be communicated to the public.

Oladeinde thanked motorists for their patience and cooperation, and reaffirmed that personnel from the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority would be deployed to the affected routes to reduce inconveniences.

As a result, he sought Lagosians’ cooperation on several ongoing road construction projects throughout the State, noting that the projects are aimed at alleviating traffic congestion in Lagos.
