Lagos SG to Shut Badagry Expressway on Oct.13
The Commissioner for Transportation, Kayode Opeifa, who disclosed this in a statement, said that the closure would serve as part of concerted efforts to deliver the first phase of the Blue Line Rail Project.
“The contractor, Messrs China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, CCECC, will be installing pre-cast beams for the pedestrian bridge to take commuters into the rail station at Mile 2 and across the road.
“This notice serves as awareness information on the beam launch. We therefore advise motorists and other road users to use alternative routes to avoid traffic delays, Kayode Opeifa said.
The Commissioner further said that relevant government agencies are working to ensure free flow of traffic during the closure.
“We appeal for caution and cooperation from all road users to obey all traffic regulations and ensure traffic flow during the period of closure,” Mr. Opeifa added
It would be noted that apart from linking Lagos mainland with Badagry, the very busy road also leads to neighbouring Benin Republic.
