Oba Ogunji status removed to pave way for flyover bridge

In a bid to finish up the flyover bridge construction ongoing in Agege area of Lagos, the Lagos state government has announced that there will be a partially restriction of vehicular movement in the area from January 4, 2018.

In a statement issued on Monday, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, Olujimi Hotonu, announced that this development will take effect just to speed up the ongoing construction of the Pen Cinema Flyover.

Hotonu further stressed that there will be a complete closure of roads in the area sometimes during the construction.

“However, adequate arrangements have been firmed up to mitigate the impact of the closure of the roads on motorists and residents. Traffic diversion routes have been created to ensure ease of movement along the corridor.

“The construction of the flyover embarked upon by the administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode is part of the continuous drive to ease traffic in the metropolis and boost the economy.”

The permanent secretary noted that the closure of the road will last between three months to six months.

He said, “Vehicles coming from Ogba/Oba Ogunji, except articulated vehicles, are expected to come in through Ijaiye Low Cost Housing Estate to link Iju Road; articulated vehicles and other vehicles have the option of either turning right towards Iju Road at the Pen Cinema intersection or left towards Moshalashi Alhaja.

“Vehicles coming from Iju Road should go towards Moshalashi Alhaja or turn towards Oba Ogunji/ Ogba as the turning towards the right to the Railway crossing will remain closed.

“There will be a complete closure of the road for vehicles coming from Moshalashi Alhaja towards the Railway crossing, while vehicles coming from Moshalashi Alhaja will be expected to either move towards Iju Road or turn right towards Oba Ogunji or Ogba Road.”

You will recall in a recent report of ours that the Lagos state government has demolished some buildings along the Agege, Pencinma area of Lagos to pave way for a power train which will travel from Lagos to Ibadan.
