FRSC explains alternative routes along Lagos-Ibadan expressway

THE Lagos Sector Command of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has advised motorist who intend plying the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway between 1st to 3rd July,  2016 to either move early or take alternative routes to avoid being trapped in traffic along the axis.
The expected gridlock is as a result of the various religious activities that will take place along the corridor within the period.
 A statement signed by the Sector Commander Hyginus Omeje said, “The Redeemed Christian Church of God (Holy Ghost Service) and NASFAT Annual Ramadan Vigil will hold simultaneously on Friday 1st July, 2016 while Mountain of Fire Ministry will also hold its monthly Power Must Change Hands programme on Saturday 2nd July, 2016.
 The development is coupled with the on-going rehabilitation work of the road whch will lead to  heavy volume of traffic considering the number of worshippers that will be participating in these programmes.
 The Corps advised motorists who do not wish to attend the programme to seek alternate routes in and out of Lagos.”
The alternative routes suggested are: Lekki – Epe – Ijebu Ode to link Sagamu or Ibadan;Lagos – Abeokuta Expressway through Sango Otta – Owode – Sagamu Interchange and Ikorodu – Odogunyan – Sagamu – Ibadan.
