In a statement, Lagos State Ministry of Transportation sated yesterday that the closure is in line with the Nigerian Railway Modernization Project (Lagos-Ibadan section) with extension to Lagos Ports, at Apapa.

Commuters are urged to use the following routes: Okunsanya Street, Odejobi Street and Ashade Level Cross. The routes will be closed at night to ensure smooth and uninterrupted flow of work on the rail tracks.

“The Lagos State government has therefore appealed to road users to bear the pains as it is a step towards creating a good road infrastructure that will ultimately improve the traffic situation of the state,” the statement also stated.
