Written by on July 28, 2021


The Federal Government have announced that traffic would be diverted on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway around Makun section for 72 hours to enable the contractor install a bridge beam.

Motorists using the Lagos-Sagamu axis of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway are to consider alternative routes or be ready to follow diversion guidelines.

Federal Controller of Works for Lagos State, Engineer Kayode Popoola, said the three-day diversion would last between Wednesday, July 28 and Friday, July 30.

This is to allow for the casting of a beam of an overhead bridge at the km 37 plus 100 axis of the road close to Makun in Ogun State.

“As part of the progress achieved on the road construction, the contractor will launch the beams and that will take us about 72 hours,” the federal controller said.

“It’s not like we’re trying to close the Lagos-Ibadan or that there is going to be any gridlock. We’re only using this opportunity to tell the public that it’s only 72 hours that the diversion will be created. It’s not partial closure and it’s not total closure.” Popoola said, adding that motorists should watch out for road signs and follow safety guidelines.
