The Federal Government is to begin a comprehensive rehabilitation of Eko Bridge.
The repair works, starting on 5th, March, from Alaka to Apongbon, is expected to last for six months.
To effectively manage traffic during the exercise, the Lagos State government said a diversion plan has been put in place.
According to the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederick Oladeinde, the diversion point will be 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 work,” he said in a statement.
To further manage traffic, the commissioner for said 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 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.
