The Lagos State Government has announced a temporary closure of the road from Mile 2 to Tin Can Island ports.
Taiwo Salaam, Permanent Secretary of the State Ministry of Transportation, disclosed this on Monday.
The closure will take effect from Monday and would last for 48 hours.
The development comes two days after a container fell and crushed at least two cars in the axis.
Salaam said the closure of the road is to allow “palliative repairs on the corridor.”
“The closure would be effected to allow Hitech Construction Company speed up the palliative repair works on the corridor due to incessant and avoidable accidents experienced by motorists,” Salaam said.
“All trucks should avoid the corridor to all the repair works which are done in the interest of motorists.
“These repairs and so many others that are in the offing are in consonance with the plans of the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to make Lagos traffic free for its citizenry.”
