The Lagos State Government has announced ten weeks partial closure of Eko Bridge from Costain to Alaka inbound National Stadium for emergency repairs by the Federal Government from June 4 to August 13.
The State Commissioner for Transportation, Frederic Oladeinde in a statement said the repair was necessary to complete the rehabilitation works at the opposite side of the bridge earlier embarked upon by the Federal Government, hence the need for a notice of route diversion.
He added that pending the commencement of the rehabilitation works, alternative routes have been made available for the awareness of motorists, to manage traffic during the period of repairs.
”Motorists from Eko bridge will have to navigate their desired destinations through Costain Roundabout to Abebe Village( by Nigerian Breweries Plc) through Eric Moore to Bode Thomas to Adeniran Ogunsanya, to access Shitta Roundabout by Stadium under bridge to Funso Williams Avenue to Dorman-Long Bridge and Fadeyi-Ikorodu Road.
The commissioner further urged motorists to bear the inconveniences, as the project was aimed at achieving a seamless, safe and efficient transport system that would meet the transportation needs of a larger population.
“In like manner, traffic directions and road signals would be made available to minimize inconveniences that may be experienced while the construction work lasts,” he said.
