The Ogun State Government has charged motorists and general public to observe and adhere strictly to the diversion guidelines on Lagos-Sagamu Expressway as specified by the Federal Ministry of Works and Power.
The State Commissioner for Transportation, Engineer Gbenga Dairo gave this charge today while reacting to the announced 72 hours closure and a temporary diversion of traffic on the road from outbound and inward Lagos by the Federal Ministry of Works and Power.
The closure exercises which is contained in a notification letter signed by the Lagos Federal Controller of Woks, Engineer J.O Popoola and communicated to the Ogun State Commissioner for Transportation, Engineer Gbenga Dairo indicated that the temporary closure is connected to the installation of a flyover cross beam at Mountain Top University, commencing from Monday, 28th December, 2020 to Wednesday, 30th December, 2020 with effect from the hours of 5.00pm and 6.00am daily.
The notice revealed that the traffic management plan indicated that diversion of the carriage way starts from 200metres before CH 16 + 540 and terminates after CH 16 + 540 every day.

While urging all road users to be careful and observant of the temporary traffic arrangements especially at this yuletide period, Engineer Dairo regrets any inconvenience that the rescheduled traffic arrangements may cause.
