The Lagos state government has shut down the road from Mile 2 to Tincan Island Ports to enable minor reconstruction.
The closure of the road will last from Monday, June 17 to Tuesday, June 18.
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Taiwo Olufemi Salaam, made this disclosure on Monday.
He said that the road repairs to be undertaken by Hitech Construction Company was necessitated by frequent and avoidable accidents experienced along the axis.
He added that the closure of the road is to allow “palliative repairs on the corridor.”
“The closure would be effected to allow Hitech Construction Company speed up the palliative repair works on the corridor due to incessant and avoidable accidents experienced by motorists,” Salaam said.
“All trucks should avoid the corridor to all the repair works which are done in the interest of motorists.
“These repairs and so many others that are in the offing are in consonance with the plans of the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to make Lagos traffic free for its citizenry.”
The shutdown of the road is coming two days after a container fell on two cars around Tin Can island. The affected vehicles were badly damaged.
