The Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta road is in the news again. The road which has been in construction since 2017 is one of the busiest road linking Ogun State to Lagos metropolis.

Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta Expressway

The Lagos – Abeokuta Expressway is an 81-kilometre-long (50 mi) expressway connecting Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State, and Ikeja, the capital of Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city.[1] The Lagos – Abeokuta expressway is Nigeria busiest highway, linking people living in metropolitan and greater Lagos, as well as people from outside the state. This expressway is the busiest inter-state and intra-city route in Nigeria and handles more than 250,000 PCUs daily and constitutes one of the largest road networks in Africa.

In 2017 the Lagos State government decided to develop and construct a BRT lane on the Lagos Abeokuta expressway. The construction and development of the BRT lane is to be in two phases, the phase I is from Oshodi to Abule Egba, while phase II runs from Abule Egba to Ota toll gate which is the boundary between Lagos and Ogun States. “The regulator of the BRT scheme, the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), has boasted that traffic on the heavily congested Oshodi-Iyana-Ipaja-Abule-Egba route would reduce by 40 per cent after the completion of the project.” “The passengers estimate on the corridor is about 230,000 per day, but it can go up to 300,000.
