Red Line Rail Project: Lagos State Govt To Divert Traffic Along Obafemi Awolowo Way

Posted on August 12, 2022


In continuation of the ongoing construction of the Lagos Rail Mass Transit Red Line, the Lagos State Government will close a lane on Obafemi Awolowo Way from Glass House to the Ikeja Local Government Secretariat from Thursday, 18th August to Thursday, 29th September, 2022.


A statement signed by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, said that traffic on Obafemi Awolowo Way will be diverted to Oba Akran Avenue inbound Obasa Road, connecting Oshifala Street towards the railway level crossing onto Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway.


He noted that officers of the Lagos States Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) would oversee the flow of traffic and minimise inconveniences, adding that towing vehicles will be deployed along the axis to remove faulty or moribund vehicles that could impede the movement of commuters.

The Commissioner implored residents, especially motorists plying the axis, to cooperate with the State government, adding that the project is part of the intermodal transport system designed to resolve transportation challenges in the State.
