The Lagos State Government has announced a traffic diversion at the Alagba ramp inwards Lagos Abeokuta Expressway from Thursday, 24th August, 2023 for a duration of 18 weeks.
This is in continuation of the Iyana Ipaja Bus Terminal Project.
A statement issued by Abdulhafiz Toriola, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, on Wednesday, said alternative routes would be available for motorists during the construction period.
He said motorists inbound Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway from the Iyana Ipaja bridge would be diverted to Alagba intersection to link the slip road on the left side of the Alagba roundabout to access Lagos Abeokuta Expressway.
Toriola added that heavy vehicles from Egbeda/Alagutan inbound Agege or Abule- Egba would be diverted to the Lagos- bound slip road from Eco bank Roundabout to make a U- turn at Iyana Dopemu to continue their journeys.
He said motorists were implored to be patient as the closure of the ramp is temporary and part of the traffic management plans to enhance mobility and ensure safety.
