The Lagos State Government says it has concluded plans to shut and divert traffic at Ilepo Bus Stop, along Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Alimosho Local Government Area, LGA, of the state.

Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Engr. Abdulafiz Toriola, announced this on Wednesday.

According to Toriola, the construction was part of efforts to address the perennial flooding challenge at Ilepo Bus Stop area.

He said there would be traffic diversion at the Kataguwa/Ilepo axis of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway for the construction of culverts starting from Friday, August 4, 2023.

Toriola said, “Consequently, the following alternative routes will be available to motorists during the construction period; Traffic from Iyana Ipaja towards Abule-Egba will be diverted to the BRT Lane from Iyana Ipaja.

“Traffic from Iyana Ipaja towards Abule Egba and traffic from Abule-Egba inward Iyana Ipaja will be diverted to service lanes.

“Traffic from Abule-Egba towards Iyana Ipaja will be diverted to the Bus Rapid Transit, BRT lane from Abule-Egba.”

He therefore urged motorists to be patient as the lane closure is part of the traffic management plan for the construction of drains across Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.
