Lagos State has announced that the Adegbola Level Crossing at Ikeja will be closed down from 6 PM on Saturday to 6 AM on Sunday.
The decision was taken to enable the contractor handling the Lagos-Ibadan railway modernisation project to lay tracks, a statement said on Thursday.
The government advised motorists to use alternative routes to get to their destinations.
“Motorists who want to access Adegbola Street or reach other areas from Adegbola, are advised to use Works Road, Oba Akinjobi Way, to Ikeja Under Bridge, Ashade Underpass, Airport Under Bridge, Ikeja Along, Local Government Secretariat Way, to get to their desired destinations.
“Road users are advised to comply with the traffic directions to minimise inconvenience in movement. The closure has been slated for this time to ensure there is a smooth and uninterrupted flow of work on the rail tracks,” the statement added.
