The Lagos State government has announced the closure of the road from Mile 2 to Tin Can Island ports corridor to allow palliative repairs on the road.

The closure takes effect from Monday, June 17, 2019, and it will last for 48 hours.

The announcement was made on Monday by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Transportation, Taiwo Salaam.

Salaam said the closure would be effected to allow the construction company to “speed up the palliative repair works on the corridor due to incessant and avoidable accidents experienced by motorists.”

He advised all trucks to avoid the affected corridors to allow all the repair works to be done.

Salaam added that these repairs and so many others that are in the offing are in consonance with the plans of the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to make Lagos traffic free for its citizenry.
