If your usual route in Lagos mainland goes through Adejobi Street, you may need to temporarily change it as the road is closed for now

Lagos State Government has issued an announcement effectively shutting down Adejobi Street, Agege which will experience partial closure. The enforced closing of the road, as announced by LASG, will commence on Tuesday, March 17h, which is today, and will last up until three days later, on the 19th of March, Thursday this week. Commenting on the development LASG transport ministry put the cause of the closure at the need to ensure smooth work in laying of railway tracks which is happening due to the railway modernization project across the country. This project has been going on for a while now and continues to impact on the daily lives of Lagos residents.

The statement coming from the State Transportation Ministry informs the public that the road will be barred fro traffic between the hours of 6 a.m to 6 p.m. each day.  Road users were thus advised to make use of the Fagba route to access Ashade Underpass and streets like Toyin. The Ministry does not foresee any major difficulties in the temporary diversion.

Further, the Lagos State Government took the opportunity to thank the residents of the state in general and drivers and road users in particular for their patience so far as the state government continues wide-reaching road projects to ultimately mage the state navigable by all. The Government was at pains to point out its total commitment to making the dream of the multi-modal transport system in Lagos state a beautiful reality. The Railway Modernization Project is thus seen as a viable part of providing transportation to the state's teeming millions.
