TRACE Corps of Ogun State has reminded the motoring public to reconsider (if possible) their travelling plans for the first weekend in September 2017.
A statement made available by TRACE PRO, Cdr Babatunde Akinbiyi, advised commuters plying some section of roads along Lagos and Ogun routes to either make the journey before the weekend.
“If you’re travelling by road, it’s advisable you do so on Tuesday (29th Auguat) or Wednesday (30th August) because Lagos-Ibadan expressway will be busy starting from Thursday, due to the following programs:
- Muslim faithful celebrate Eid-el-Kabir on Friday, September 1, 2017 and will be praying at NASFAT Ground.
- The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG)’s first Friday Holy Ghost Service scheduled for Friday, 1 September 1, 2017.
- Mountain of Fire’s…Power Must Change Hands – Saturday, 2nd September, 2017.
- Ojude-Oba Festival at Ijebu-Ode will hold on Sunday, September 3, 2017, it is also important you’re informed and guided ahead.
“The coincidence of these celebrations and religious programmes suggests an increase in the volume of human and vehicular traffic, especially along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, with its attendant traffic challenges.
“In this regard, motorists plying the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on any of these days, but who are not attending the aforementioned religious programmes and are in haste, are advised to please make use of the following alternative routes:
- Sango Ota-Ifo-Abeokuta-Sagamu/Interchange-Ijebu/Ode-Benin/Ore Expressway.
- Victoria Island-Lekki-Epe-Ijebu/Ode-Benin/Ore Expressway.
- Ikorodu-Itoikin-Benin/Ore Expressway.
- Mowe Ofada-Sagamu/Interchange-Ijebu/Ode-Benin/Ore Expressway.
“You have been properly guided,” he said.
