The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has developed strategic plans to address the expected increase in traffic congestion on the Herbert Macaulay Way due to drainage rehabilitation.

The General Manager, of LASTMA, Mr Olalekan Bakare-Oki, confirmed this in a statement on Thursday in Lagos.

Bakare-Oki said there would be alternative routes for motorists inward-bound Yaba Tech, Sabo en-route Herbert Macaulay Way to Adekunle/Third Mainland Bridge.

“From Fadeyi-Jibowu via Muritala Mohammed Way to Montgomery Road, motorists can connect to Harvey Road and then to Agnes Junction. From there, they can navigate through Sabo and Alagomeji to the Third Mainland Bridge.

“Vehicles bound for Obalende from Fadeyi to Jibowu via Muritala Mohammed Way can link to Herbert Macaulay from Alagomeji and continue their journey to Adekunle, then connect to the Third Mainland Bridge.

“Motorists coming from Mushin en-route to Empire heading to Obalende can follow the same route to connect to UNILAG or Obalende,” he said.

Babare-Oki said that LASTMA officials had been strategically positioned at various choke points to manage traffic and address any incident or emergency.
