The Lagos State Government has assured Motorists of its collaboration with the Federal Government to ease the traffic on Kara, Berger-OPIC Axis due to the ongoing reconstruction works along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway by the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing.
The Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde who made this known today, explained that the review of the traffic management plan became necessary along with the Lagos State Special Adviser to the Governor on Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Aramide Adeyoye, representative of the Controller of Works, Federal Ministry of Works and the Traffic Management Agencies of both Lagos and Ogun State.
The Transport Commissioner stated that the traffic management plan of the construction works needed to be reworked as the existing plan is not adequate for the traffic demand towards Ogun State presently.
The plan is being worked on in collaboration with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, (LASTMA) and the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE) to ensure an improved adequate and effective traffic management during the remaining period of the repair works to minimize Motorists inconveniences.
Oladeinde while appealing for continuous cooperation of the general public with the stationed Traffic Control Officers to actualize free and steady flow of traffic, also advised Motorists to be safety conscious by driving with caution along the construction routes and avoid driving against traffic.
