The Lagos State Government has announced the closure of Pen Cinema axis in Agege, for ongoing construction work on the Fly-Over Bridge from 11.00 am on Wednesday, 17th June to Thursday, 25th June 2020.
Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, says the closure became necessary to enable contractors to launch beams across Iju Road without any interruptions.
He explained that for better management of the traffic situation along the axis, alternative routes have been provided for motorists to navigate without any problems.
Oladeinde emphasized that Motorists coming from Fagba end of Iju Road will be diverted through Ifako General Hospital Road and Oyemekun Road, to link up College Road inward Ogba, while commuters heading to Mosalasi Alhaja will be diverted to link Ijaye Housing Estate from Odejobi Road.
The Commissioner also assured that officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, will be deployed to the diversion points to manage movement, ensure the free flow of traffic and enforce strict adherence to the directives issued.
He implored motorists to cooperate fully and bear with the government as it works tirelessly to build an efficient multi-modal transportation system for the benefit of all Lagosians.
