The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Mr. Olukayode Popoola, yesterday announced a six-day traffic diversion on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, starting from today, to speed up construction works on the road.

In a statement, Popoola said the diversion is meant to enable the contractor handling section one of the project, Julius Berger, to lay asphalt between Arepo and Warewa, a distance of one and a half kilometres.

The Federal Controller explained that there is the need to prepare the ground around Punch area, hence the need for the traffic diversion to speed up construction works.

He added that the traffic diversion would be on the Lagos-bound carriageway.

Popoola appealed for understanding of road users, saying adequate arrangements had been made for traffic regulatory agencies to manage the construction zone to avert gridlock.
