The Lagos State Government will be diverting the traffic on Adegbola Street from Sunday 11th April, 2021 for 15 months.

This is to enable the construction of Ikeja Overpass for the Red Line Project of the Lagos Rail Mass Transit.

Commissioner for Transportation Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement, explained the diversion was in line with the need to preserve and protect motorists and other road users against any form of accident during the stipulated construction duration.

While assuring adequate traffic management plan has been put in place for the period of the diversion, the Commissioner disclosed that motorists from computer village and Simbiat Abiola Way heading towards Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway will be diverted to Akinremi street to link Oshifila Street to make their way through the rail level crossing to their desired destinations.
