In line with the Nigerian Railway Modernization Project (Lagos-Ibadan section) with extension to Lagos Port at Apapa, the Lagos State Government will close down Brewery Level Crossing/Gaskiya road for construction works from Friday 14th to Thursday 20th February, 2020.

The ongoing construction on the aforementioned routes, according to a statement from the Ministry of Transportation, would be done in two parts to ease traffic movement.

It said the construction work would commence on the first half of the affected routes and last for the first three days, after which the second half route would commence and equally last for the last three days.

“Road users will be allowed to ply available sides of the roads while the road is being worked on to ease traffic movement and allow motorists reach their various destinations with less difficulty.

“Road users are therefore advised to comply with the Traffic directions and road signals to minimize inconveniences that may be experienced while the construction works lasts,” the government said.

The Statement noted that the closure has been slated at this time, to ensure there is smooth and uninterrupted flow of work on the rail tracks.

“Lagos State Government is hereby appealing to residents of the State, especially motorists that ply these corridors to bear the pains, as the project is aimed at achieving a seamless Multi Modal Transport System that will meet the transportation needs of a larger population,” it added.
