DATE: Tuesday 14 January , 2020
WEATHER CONDITION : Bright and cool
FUEL SITUATION: Normal
SECURITY SITUATIONS: There is no threat to patrol operatives and equipment.
Despite the planned diversion of traffic around the Ogun River KARA Bridge section of the Lagos- Ibadan Expressway today , traffic inward Lagos as at time of reporting was still free . Minor obstructions, but moving traffic were only noticed within the construction areas inward Lagos especially around Ibafo, Magboro and Punch ,due largely to high vehicular influx going into Lagos .
Apart from the above scenario , traffic on other road corridors in Ogun State, though heavy ,are moving freely , “including the Lagos – Ibadan Expressway; Sagamu – Ìjẹ̀bú-Òde; Sagamu – Mosinmi – Ikorodu; Abeokuta – Ibadan; Abeokuta – Ọ̀tà-Lagos and Ota – Idiroko international corridors. All the corridors have free and moving traffic, except around the aforementioned construction areas.
Ogun State road Corridors are also safe as at time of reporting.
ROAD TRAFFIC CRASHES :
There was no case of road traffic crash recorded yesterday, Monday 13 January, 2020 across Ogun State
But a crash occurred at the very early hours of today at about 0030hrs early hour along the Abeokuta – Lagos Expressway around the old Tollgate at Ota . The details of the crash would be provided on Day 32 Report .
TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Motorists should drive cautiously and obey extant traffic rules and regulations, and particularly resist the temptation of driving against traffic for whatever reason, due to the dangers inherent in such unwholesome practice .
They should also plan their journies to accommodate additional travel time required to navigate around areas where lanes have narrowed due to the construction activities of the two major construction companies , Reynolds Construction Company (RCC) and Julius Berger Nigeria PLC (JBN), who have resumed the rehabilitation of the Benin – Ore – Ijebu Ode- Sagamu and the Lagos – Ibadan Expressways. This is in addition to the rehabilitation activities of the Ogun State Public Works Agency (OGPWA) in roads rehabilitation across Ogun State.
The FRSC Ogun State Sector Commander, Clement Oladele
has accordingly admonished motorists to drive with utmost caution especially around construction zones .
The Sector Commander, enjoined Motorists to note that the areas where diversions were removed on the Lagos – Ibadan and the Sagamu- Ijebu Ode – Ore – Benin Expressways are still construction zones and they should therefore maintain the stipulated 50 km per hour maximum speed limit as well as refrain from overtaking till they are clearly out of construction zone, as violators are liable to prosecution.
Motorists are to note too the need to drive cautiously as repair works are ongoing by RCC on the Sagamu Interchange Bridge, partly burnt by the 25 December 2019 twin – tankers crash. Motorists should obey the FRSC Marshals controlling the flow of traffic in addition to the road signs erected to guide motorisation.
