The Lagos State Government says it will be diverting traffic along Inner Marina to Outer Marina by Oando Filling Station from 5am till 6pm on Friday due to the Burial Service of the late former Head of Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan.
The state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, made the disclosure in a statement on Wednesday in Lagos.
Oladeinde explained that all adjoining and feeder roads leading to inner Marina road and to Nitel building would be cordoned off.
He advised motorists to utilise JK Randle Street through Force Road to connect Broad Street and continue their journey as inner Marina Road/Odunlami Street from Outer Marina Road would be barred from vehicular movement.
In the same vein, Oladeinde stated that motorists descending CMS Bridge to Cathedral Church would be temporarily diverted to UBA Roundabout or Apongbon for onward navigation to other inner parts of Lagos Island to connect their destinations.
The Transport Commissioner assured that security and law enforcement agencies would be deployed to all strategic junctions/intersections and black spots to reduce delays and ensure security of lives and property both along the routes leading to the venue and alternative routes highlighted.
Oladeinde extended the appreciation of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to the citizenry for their patience and understanding, adding that the state government sincerely appeals to residents for any inconvenience the diversion may cause.
