In reference to the notification received from the Federal Ministry of Works on the comprehensive repair works on Eko Bridge (Alaka-Apongbon), the Lagos State Government has released the diversion plan for a duration of 6 months commencing from Saturday 5th March, 2022.
According to the repair schedule contained in the notification, the diversion point is on the Apongbon bound lane of the bridge. Articulated and Heavy duty Trucks will be barred from using the bridge due to the nature of the repair works. They will therefore be diverted to Costain Roundabout to access their desired destinations, while smaller vehicles inbound Apongbon from Alaka can still utilize the bridge during the course of the repair works.
To further manage traffic, the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde affirmed that traffic guides will be mounted along the affected routes to help motorists navigate the axis during the construction, adding that the State Traffic Management Authority will be on ground to coordinate movement.
While lauding the citizenry for their uncompromised understanding and patience amidst various ongoing road projects within the State, Oladeinde assured that the end result will be beneficial to the people and the state.
