Lagos shuts Ijora road for Apapa port rail connection 


The Lagos State Government said it will divert traffic flow at Brewery and Ijora Level Crossing for construction from Sunday, 4 July to 1 August, 2021, a period of 28 days.

This is in line with the rail modernisation project (Lagos-Ibadan section) with extension to the Lagos Port Complex, Apapa.

Lagos State Commissioner of Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, disclosed that China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC) would commence asphalt and drainage works on the first lane from the 4th to 18th July and proceed to the second lane from 18th July to the 1st of August, 2021.

He explained that a counter flow will be created on the lane that is free when rehabilitation works is ongoing on the other, to enable motorists ply the route and reach their various destinations without much difficulty.

Oladeinde urged road users to comply with the directives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) to minimize inconveniences that may be experienced while the construction lasts.

“Lagos State Government is hereby appealing to residents of the state, especially motorists to cooperate fully with the interventions made available to ease traffic flow, as the project is aimed at achieving a seamless multimodal transport system that will provide viable options for movement and subsequently meet the transportation needs of a larger population,” he said.
