Due to the ongoing Lagos-Ibadan Standard Guage rail project, the Abule railway level crossing along Apapa will not be opened on Saturday and Sunday says the Lagos state government.
The railway construction which is handled by the China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC) commended on Saturday morning and will be completed by 8pm, Sunday night.
In a statement, Mrs Bolanle Ogunlola, Spokesperson for the Ministry of Transportation, said the step was for the Nigerian Railway Modernisation Project (Lagos-Ibadan section) with extension to Lagos Port, Apapa.
“As a result of the ongoing construction on the aforementioned route, the new Costain Bridge will be opened to all motorists on Nov. 19, to serve as an alternative route for motorists plying the axis to aid their movement.
“Motorists coming from Oyingbo to access Funsho Williams Avenue, Iponri, Surulere are advised to connect the newly constructed Costain Bridge through Apapa Road to their destinations
“Motorists from Eko Bridge heading toward Iponri, Funsho Williams Avenue will also utilise the newly constructed Costain Bridge through Costain round about to reach their destinations.
“Road users that are in Apapa, Iganmu and Lagos Island from Funsho Williams Avenue, Surulere, Iponri can use the newly constructed bridge to Costain round about.
“Road users are, therefore, advised to comply with the state’s traffic management personnel, traffic directions and road signals to minimize inconveniences that may be experienced while construction work lasts.
“The Lagos State Government hereby appeal to residents, especially motorists, that ply these corridors to bear the pains,” the Spokesperson said.
