The govt of Lagos state says it will partially close Maryland to Ojota Service lane for some scheduled construction works
The Lagos state transport commissioner explained in his official statement that the partial closure of the Maryland-Ojota service lane is crucial in enabling contractors to continue the ongoing Ikorodu road reconstruction project. The commissioner also gave his bit of advice as regards alternative routes which affected Lagos motorists could take during the lane closure.
Below is a brief highlight of the alternative routes suggested by the commissioner:
- For all motor traffics coming from the Ikeja axis – they are advised to use the 7UP road in getting through Billings way to finally link with Oregun or Kudirat Abiola Way inward Ikorodu road around Ojota bus stop area.
- For traffic coming from Lagos-Ibadan expressway and heading to Maryland/Ojota Bus Stop – they could either use Abiola Garden’s loop to directly connect with Ikorodu road or proceed to Oworonshoki/Gbagada area instead.
- Also, motorists coming from Lagos-Ibadan expressway can go through a loop that is beside the LAMATA main office to easily access the Ikorodu road and then to Ojota.
