The Lagos government announces a six-month traffic diversion plan


The Lagos State Government has released a traffic diversion plan for Adeniji through Falomo, including Bourdillon and Queens Drive on the Lagos Island.

The Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi, stated on Friday explaining that the diversion is being implemented to assist with the repair of damaged sections of the roads.

The repair work is set to commence on Monday, May 13, 2024, and is anticipated to conclude on November 7, 2024.

The repair works will be conducted in phases to address the traffic implications. Starting from Monday, 13th May 2024, Phase 1 will be dedicated to improving the stretch from Glover Road Junction on Alfred Rewane Road to Falomo Roundabout. For this phase, traffic will not be allowed on the road from Glover Junction to Falomo Roundabout.

During the first phase of repair works, drivers on Alfred Rewane Road who are heading towards Falomo Roundabout will need to make a left turn at Glover Road Junction onto Thompson Avenue. From there, they can access Falomo Bridge through Bourdillon Road and continue on their way.

“The other side of the road will be open to traffic,” Osiyemi stated, referring to the section from Falomo Roundabout heading towards Mainland.

The commissioner emphasized the importance of motorists being patient during the partial closure, as it is a crucial part of the traffic management strategy for the rehabilitation of the asphalt pavement on the affected road sections by the Federal Ministry of Works.
