Dr Frederic Oladeinde, stated that based on the project schedule, kilometre 0-5 (zero to Five) of the Lagos-Sagamu expressway would be modified for traffic diversion.

He assured the public that the other lanes on the expressway would be accessible to motorists during the cause of the construction.
