To enable free flow of traffic, the Lagos State Government has announced the closure of the Mile 2 – Tincan Island Corridor to traffic for 72 hours.
The State said this will be effective Monday, December 9, 2019.
In a statement issued and signed by the State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Fredric Oladeinde, the planned closure is to allow the State Government to carry out palliative works on the bad portion on the axis without hindrance to vehicular movement.
“Effective from Midnight of Sunday, December 8, 2019, all vehicles and trucks carrying export products and empty containers for TinCan Port operations are to stay out of the corridor for the next three days so as to carry out the palliative work on the road”.
Oladeinde noted that fuel laden-tankers and other vehicles on important services are exempted from the directive.
He explained that there is an urgent need to rehabilitate the corridor from flow of traffic congestion.
He further hinted the move would also prevent further accidents involving articulated vehicles and trucks due to the bad condition of the road.
Oladehinde charged freight forwarders, fleet operators, transport agents and trucks Owners to take note of the traffic arrangement and comply accordingly.
He, therefore, buttressed that any inconvenience emanating from the closure is regrettable because the effort is geared towards improving vehicular movement in the region.
