FAAN diverts vehicles at Lagos airport over road construction
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said yesterday that due to the on-going construction work at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, vehicular movements on the arrival floor will be redirected effective from Monday morning.
To this effect, a temporary Arrival Pick Up Zone in the old car park (opposite the terminal building) will be opened, the authority said in a statement by Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, General Manager, Corporate Communications of FAAN.
She said, “consequently, arriving passengers will, as usual, exit the halls through Arrival Gate D, but will no longer be able to turn left as the left axis will be closed due to construction. All passengers after exiting from Arrival Gate D, will now turn right and proceed to the old car park (opposite the terminal building) where the temporary pick up zone has been created.”
She added that to ensure seamless vehicular movement, the Authority has already mobilized relevant security agencies to assist in the exercise.
The spokesperson reiterated that the construction work was aimed at improving travel experience of customers.
Daily Trust on Sunday reports that the Authority on Saturday closed the busiest D wing of the airport and diverted flights to the E wing for routine maintenance. The flights diversion lasted two hours, it was learnt.
