The Lagos State Government has said it is reviewing its traffic management plan to address the traffic jam at the Kara-Berger section of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, at a meeting with relevant stakeholders on Wednesday, said the review was necessary because of the inadequacy of the existing plan.
In a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday, Oladeinde said the state was collaborating with the Federal Government to resolve the issue.
“The plan is being worked on in collaboration with the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority and the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps to ensure an improved adequate and effective traffic management during the remaining period of the repair works to minimise motorists’ inconvenience,” Oladeinde said.
The commissioner urged motorists to cooperate with traffic officers along the road, drive with caution along the construction routes and avoid driving against traffic.
Present during the meeting included the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Works and Infrastructure, Aramide Adeyoye; and representatives of the Controller of Works, Federal Ministry of Works and the traffic management agencies of both Lagos and Ogun states.
