As per Toriola, the entrance to CMD Road will be inaccessible for three consecutive days, starting Wednesday, August 9. This hiatus will facilitate the final application of the wearing course, a crucial phase in the construction process.
Additionally, Toriola affirmed that the Access Road to Isheri-Olowora on the Shagamu bound carriageway, situated near the Berger bus stop pedestrian bridge, will observe a three-day closure commencing Thursday, August 10.

For Isheri-Olowora-bound motorists intending to exit the expressway via the access preceding the Pedestrian Bridge at Berger bus stop, the subsequent exit by New Garage will serve as a conduit to Isheri-Olowora.
Toriola implored motorists to cooperate harmoniously with the dispatched traffic management personnel, whose guidance will ensure a seamless navigation experience towards desired destinations amidst these temporary road closures.
