The Lagos State Government said it would be diverting traffic at Kayode Ogunmokun road in Mushin for six weeks in continuation of the first phase of the Lagos Red Line Rail Mass Transit project from Oyingbo to Agbado.
A statement by the Ministry of Transportation and signed by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, said that Ogunmokun road would be closed from Nov. 7, till Dec. 31 2021, a period of six weeks.
Oladeinde also disclosed that the diversion was part of the traffic management plan for the construction of the Mushin Overpass, adding that the middle lanes would be cordoned off for construction work to ensure safety.
Oladeinde further explained that motorists would be diverted to the lanes on both sides of the road to minimise the inconvenience.
He also assured that signage would be mounted and traffic management personnel would be deployed to guide movement during the course of the construction works.
Reiterating the continuous commitment of the Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration towards the development of transport infrastructure within the metropolis, the transport commissioner maintained that a Multi-Modal Transportation System would boost the economic prowess of the citizenry and the state.
