Lagos Announces Movement Restriction around Oshodi from Sunday July 1st

The Lagos State Government has announced that there will be partial vehicular restriction around the Oshodi flyover to enable speedy construction of the Oshodi transport interchange that is ongoing.

Mr. Ade Akinsanya, the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure in Lagos in a statement released to the effect said: “The flyover would be completely closed in the direction of Anthony to the Airport, while the motorists (in both directions) would now make use of the second carriageway, that is, the one in the direction from the Airport to Oshodi to Anthony.

“We encourage individuals and groups that may have cause to use the network of roads and bridges passing through or linking Oshodi and its environs to be alert to disruptions and danger associated with the movement of heavy steel and equipment.”

It is believed that the construction has reached a critical state and structural steel are ready to be mounted for the Skywalk bridge.

The restriction will take effect from 10pm on Sunday, July 1, to 5am on Monday, July 2, 2018.
