The Lagos state government has announced plans to divert traffic from Adegbola Street, Ikeja, from April 11 for 15 months.


Frederic Oladehinde, commissioner for transportation, said the road closure is in readiness for the construction of Ikeja overpass and the Lagos rail mass transit red line project.

In a statement on Wednesday, he said the state is dedicated to ensuring the safety of road users and contractors from accidents during the construction period.

He said motorists from Computer Village and Simbiat Abiola way heading towards Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway would be diverted to Akinremi street to link Oshifila street to make their way through the rail level crossing to their desired destinations.


“The Transport Commissioner further stated that motorists from Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway will equally be diverted to the Ikeja rail level crossing to connect Balogun Street and connect Oduyemi street to link Obafemi Awolowo way to other locations,” the statement read.

“Oladeinde also added that traffic advisory Board will be placed at Ikeja Under Bridge area, Simbiat Abiola way Junction and Adebola/Balogun Junctions to serve as a guide and reminder for motorists that ply these corridors frequently.

He appealed to residents and motorists plying the route to cooperate with the traffic management personnel charged with the task of ensuring free vehicular movement in the area.
