LASG sets to close some roads as it begins 4th segment of rehabilitation works on Ketu-Mile 12 corridor
Dr Frederic Oladeinde, the commissioner for transportation in Lagos state, confirmed in his recent public statement that the 4th segment of reconstruction works on the Ketu to Mile 12 corridor will begin on 11th of November, 2020. He claims that the new segment of works will mainly entail the changing of all the road surfaces in the corridor to RCCP (Reinforce Continous Concrete Pavement). The commissioner also gave a list of appropriate alternative routes as part of the state government’s diversion plans for traffic in the affected areas during this 4th segment of construction works.
Below is a more concise highlight of all the alternative routes suggested by the Lagos state transport commissioner:
- BRT lanes and any available carriage lanes inward Mile 12 should be used by motorists coming from Ketu through the Owode Elede area and headed for Ikorodu;
- Motorists coming from Ketu directly inward Ikorodu are expected to exit the regular service lane, particularly at Ile-Ife bus stop so that they can join a different lane to reconnect with Mile-2 bridge from 2 pm every day. Meanwhile, all traffic will be allowed to flow normally from 12 am (midnight) to 2 pm daily;
- All articulated vehicles are expected to use Ibikunle Street and Oremerin to approach Mile-12 market;
- Any other routes and street roads that link to Mile-12 area but not affected by the new segment of rehabilitation works.
