Lagos Govt. to close Jibowu Crossing for 30 days


The Lagos State Government has declared that a section of the Jibowu Crossing in Yaba area will be on lockdown for thirty days.

The directive takes effect from Wednesday, July 31, 2019 to Thursday, August 29, 2019.

According to the state government, the closure is to enable the relocation of gas pipes situated close to the perimeter of the rail line.

A statement released by the State Ministry of Transportation also revealed that the closure and relocation work on the gas pipeline would disturb the free flow of traffic around the corridor. It, therefore, advised motorists to make use of alternative routes.

“Motorists are advised to avoid this area but road users who cannot completely ignore the corridor are advised to obey traffic officers and other law enforcement personnel assigned to manage traffic during the period of relocation of the gas pipeline,” the Ministry said.
