The Lagos State government has announced the suspension of repairs on the Iyana Era/Badagry Expressway, citing unforeseen circumstances as the reason for the action.

In a statement, the Commissioner for Transportation, Mr Frederic Oladeinde, stated that a new date for the commencement of the section of the Lagos-bound lane would be communicated to the public.

Also, the Commissioner disclosed that on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, traffic would be diverted from Maryland/Mende Underpass to allow contractors to work on the Opebi/Ojota Link Bridge project.

According to him, alternative routes have been mapped out to ease movement during the reconstruction of the underpass. He advised motorists to use the Ojota Interchange to connect Maryland and its environs.

Mr Oladeinde also urged motorists heading to the inner streets of the axis to make use of Mobolaji Bank Anthony to access Emmanuel, Aderibigbe Shitta and Adeoye Adeyemi Streets. In contrast, those heading towards Mende and its environs can use Mende Street to link Ajose Street and connect Oki lane to continue their journey.

Commending motorists for their patience and cooperation, Mr Oladeinde disclosed that officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) personnel would be deployed to the affected routes to minimise inconveniences.

He, therefore, sought the cooperation of Lagosians on the several ongoing road constructions across the state, noting that the projects are aimed at easing the traffic challenges in Lagos.
