He said that pending the commencement of the rehabilitation works, alternative routes have been made available for the awareness of motorists, to manage traffic during the period of repairs.

”Traffic from Apongbon to Alaka, Stadium, Inner Surulere or Ikorodu Road will be diverted to Eko Bridge to access Costain Roundabout to Iponri through Alaka and Funso Williams Avenue.

”Similarly, motorists from Eko bridge will have to navigate their desired destinations through Costain Roundabout to Abebe Village( by Nigerian Breweries Plc) through Eric Moore to Bode Thomas to Adeniran Ogunsanya, to access Shitta Roundabout by Stadium under bridge to Funso Williams Avenue to Dorman-Long Bridge and Fadeyi-Ikorodu Road.

“Motorists can gain access to Apongbon through CMS Outer Marina Road to connect Ebute Metta Ikorodu Road to access their destinations.

”Motorists from Apongbon can pass through CMS to Outer Marina to Adeniji Adele, Third Mainland Bridge, Adekunle to Herbert Macaulay Way, Jibowu and Ikorodu road will also be available,” Oladeinde said.

He pleaded with residents of the state, especially motorists that use the route, to take note of the diversion routes.

The commissioner further pleaded the motorists to bear the inconveniences, as the project was targeted  at achieving a seamless, safe and efficient transport system that would meet the transportation needs of a larger population.

He, however, advised road users to comply with directives from the State’s Traffic Management Personnel.

“In like manner, traffic directions and road signals would be made available to minimize inconveniences that may be experienced while the construction work lasts,” he said.
