Commissioner Osiyemi outlined that the initial phase will focus on the stretch from Glover Road Junction on Alfred Rewane Road to Falomo Roundabout. 

 

During this phase, the section of the road from Glover Junction to Falomo Roundabout will be temporarily closed to traffic.

 

Motorists traveling on Alfred Rewane Road towards Falomo Roundabout will be directed to turn left at Glover Road Junction onto Thompson Avenue, providing access to Falomo Bridge through Bourdillon Road.

 

Meanwhile, the opposite side of the road, heading towards the Mainland, will remain open to traffic throughout the repair period.

 

Acknowledging the inconvenience posed by the partial closure, Commissioner Osiyemi emphasized the necessity of patience from motorists, highlighting the integral role this traffic management strategy plays in the rehabilitation of the affected road sections. 

 

The repair works are a collaborative effort between the Lagos State Government and the Federal Ministry of Works, reflecting a commitment to improving infrastructure and enhancing road safety within the state.

 

The announcement comes amid increasing concerns over the state of Lagos’ road network, with residents and commuters often contending with potholes, uneven surfaces, and traffic congestion. 

 

The proactive measures undertaken by the government signal a concerted effort to address these challenges and ensure the smooth flow of traffic while infrastructure improvements are underway.

 

Furthermore, stakeholders are encouraged to adhere to traffic regulations and follow designated diversions to minimize disruptions and ensure the safety of road users and construction personnel alike. 

 

Additionally, alternative routes may experience heightened traffic volumes during peak hours, prompting authorities to advise commuters to plan their journeys accordingly and explore alternative transportation options where feasible.

 

As the repair works progress, the Lagos State Government remains committed to providing timely updates and engaging with the public to address any concerns or issues that may arise. 

 

Through collaborative efforts and effective communication, authorities aim to minimize inconvenience and maximize the long-term benefits of the road rehabilitation project for residents, businesses, and commuters across Lagos State.

 

In conclusion, the upcoming traffic diversion plan signifies a proactive approach by the Lagos State Government to address infrastructure challenges and enhance the overall quality of transportation services. 

 

With a focus on efficiency, safety, and public engagement, the repair works aim to lay the groundwork for a more resilient and accessible road network, fostering sustainable development and economic growth within the state.
