The Lagos State Government has announced that there will be a further restriction of vehicular movement in Agege area of the state. The Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Jimi Hotonu, who announced the restriction in a statement on Friday, said it would ensure that the Pen Cinema Flyover is completed on schedule.
According to him, the restriction will affect the Agege Intersection, between Railway crossing and Church Street along Agunbiade Street in the axis.
Due to the restriction, vehicles coming from Ipaja Road towards Ogba would no longer be able to turn left at Oke-Koto.
They would be required to go straight towards Agege Motor road and take a left turn to connect the alternative route beside the Agege Post Office to link Moshalashi Alhaji and continue their journey.
The Permanent Secretary advised motorists coming from Old Abeokuta Motor Road (Abule Egba) towards Oke-Koto/Alfa Nla roads to turn right at Abattoir into Oko-Oba road to link Orile Road and further their journey to NITEL and then turn into Fagbola/Adejobi Street, to navigate into Agege Motor road via Kasumu Street, Off Agunbiade road.
The state government regrets the inconveniences the restriction would cause motorists and residents in the area and appealed to them to remain calm and cooperate with traffic and security personnel deployed to ease their movement.
He assured the affected persons that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s administration remained committed to delivering the project of the Pen Cinema flyover on schedule, to make life easy and improve traffic along the corridor.
