The inbound Maryland road from the end of Gani Fawehinmi Park to the end of the second pedestrian bridge, Ojota has been announced to be closed for six weeks, starting from Tuesday, November 17, 2020. This is coming from the Lagos State Government in a statement signed by the State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, on Monday.
According to the statement, the partial closure is to allow the contractor handling the stretch of the project from Ojota to Maryland to continue with the next phase of the construction with the inclusion of the reconstruction of the Ikorodu road.
Motorists coming from Ikeja axis are advised to use 7UP road through Billings way to link Oregun/Kudirat Abiola Way inbound Ikorodu road by Ojota bus stop.
The commissioner further assured motorist that adequate road signs have been provided to guide movement and ease mobility.
Oladeinde explained that traffic inward Ojota Bus stop/Maryland from the Ibadan-Lagos Expressway could either proceed to Oworonshoki/Gbagada or descend the loop by Abiola Garden to connect Ikorodu road (inbound Ketu).
He added that they could ascend the loop back to the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway through the loop beside LAMATA Office to access Ikorodu road to Ojota.
