The statement read, “Assuring that an adequate traffic management plan has been put in place for the period of the diversion, the Commissioner disclosed that motorists inbound Awolowo Way from the General Hospital, Ikeja or Airport Road will be diverted to Oba Akran through Ikeja Underbridge, or make a turn at Allen Junction to Ajao Road by Lagoon Hospital to link Adeniyi Jones and connect with Oba Akran to further their journey, adding that Aromire Avenue will also be open to motorists as an alternative.
“Oladeinde also stated that motorists inbound Ikeja Underbridge from Simbiat Abiola Way heading towards Adeniyi Jones and other areas in Ikeja will be diverted through Akinremi Street to link Oshifila Street and Abeokuta Street to access Oba Akran onto their desired destinations.
