The Lagos State Government will close Abule-Nla and Brewery Level Crossings for construction works on the rail track from 9:30pm on Friday 12th March, to 6:00am Saturday 13th March, 2021 in continuation of the Railway Modernisation Project.
A statement signed by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, noted that the Construction Company, China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC) Nigeria Limited, would commence a Track Stress Dispersion on the level crossings during the closure.
He said as a result of the temporary closure of the aforementioned routes, the Costain Bridge will be opened to all motorists to serve as an alternative route to aid movements to their various destinations.
The Commissioner advised road users to comply with the State’s Traffic Management Personnel directives as well as obey the strategically placed road signals to minimise inconveniences that may be experienced while the construction work lasts.
While appealing to residents of the State, especially motorists plying the corridors, to comply with traffic directives to minimise the inconvenience caused by the closure, Oladeinde said the project is aimed at achieving a seamless system that will meet the transportation needs of a larger population.
