In line with this development, Dr. Oladeinde disclosed that the Breweries level crossing will be closed from 10:00 pm on Friday, 18th to 4:00 am on Monday, 21st of December, 2020, to allow contractors to continue construction works ongoing at the rail tracks.
Why this matters
According to the information contained in the statement, Dr. Oladeinde stated that the temporary closure of the Nigerian Breweries level crossing will pave way for the construction works ongoing at the rail tracks in continuation of the Nigerian Railway Modernisation Project.
