The federal government has concluded plans for the phase two repair works on the popular Eko Bridge in Lagos (Alaka-Apongbon section).

To this end, the Lagos State Government has released a diversion plan for the duration of 18 days with effect from Saturday 23rd October to 9th November 2021.

According to the repair schedule issued by the Federal Ministry of Works as contained in the notification to the state government, the diversion point will take place on Apongbon bound of the bridge.

Commissioner for Transportation in the state, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, motorists inbound Apongbon from Alaka will therefore be diverted to Costain Roundabout to access their desired destinations.

To further manage traffic, Oladeinde disclosed 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.

Daily Trust reports that this is the first in the series of repair works and diversions in the state which have worsened traffic gridlock across the state.

However, the commissioner lauded Lagos citizens and residents “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.
