Salaam said the closure would be effected to allow the construction company to “speed up the palliative repair works on the corridor due to incessant and avoidable accidents experienced by motorists.”

He advised all trucks to avoid the affected corridors to allow all the repair works to be done.

Salaam added that these repairs and so many others that are in the offing are in consonance with the plans of the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to make Lagos traffic free for its citizenry.
