Construction work ongoing at Kara-Berger induces chaotic traffic jams that at times snarl to Govt. Secretariat. Solution in sight
The Lagos State Government is in 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.
Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, who made this known Wednesday, 22nd March 2023, 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.
Oladeinde said the traffic management plan is being reworked 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).
He said its outcome will ensure 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 a 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 the traffic.Share
