This Is Why You Should Avoid Surulere Come Sunday, December 17
Sunday, December 17, 2017 may not be a good time to drive around Teslim Balogun stadium and environs in Surulere, Lagos.
Reason is because the stadium will be used for the fourth edition of Olamide's Live in Concert (OLIC).
The singer has gotten the support of the Lagos State Government, who has now informed motorist that roads will be partially closed in that area on the said day.
Head of Operations, LASTMA Headquarters, Adeoye Oluyemi, said his team would ensure a seamless traffic operation.
“We are out to ensure a free traffic situation on that day. We are well aware of the influx of vehicles for the concert, so we are well prepared ahead of it.
“Men from the operations will be stationed at strategic places to ensure free movement of vehicles before, during and after the concert,” he told NAN.
Earlier, Oluyemi had said that traffic would be diverted at crucial locations starting from 6 a.m.
“Alhaji Masha road will be closed to vehicular traffic in both directions between the National Stadium intersection and Shitta flyover.
“All U-turns and left turns under the stadium bridge are prohibited to vehicular movement during this period except for the VVIPs coming from Alaka and proceeding towards the VVIP Car Park 1.
“The service lanes on Funsho Williams Avenue are open to traffic but motorists are advised to keep to the main carriage or expressway to navigate their journey through Stadium Bridge.
“There are two main car parks for motorist on that day, the general car park will be the National Stadium, it will also accommodate the VIP, while VVIP will use the Teslim Balogun Stadium,’’ he said.
According to the organisers, the concert will start by 12 p.m and end by 6 p.m local time.
