According to the statement, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde stated that the partial closure is to allow the contractor handling the stretch of the project from Ojota to Maryland to continue with the next phase of the construction, which includes the reconstruction of the Ikorodu road.
Alternate routes for motorists
The Commissioner advised motorists coming from Ikeja axis to use 7UP road through Billings way to link Oregun/Kudirat Abiola Way inbound Ikorodu road by Ojota bus stop.
In a bid to cushion the traffic inward Ojota Bus stop/Maryland from the Ibadan-Lagos Expressway, he advised motorists to either proceed to Oworonshoki/Gbagada or descend the loop by Abiola Garden to connect Ikorodu road (inbound Ketu).
The commissioner advised that the motorists could ascend the loop back to the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway through the loop beside LAMATA Office to access Ikorodu road to Ojota.
