FG announces closure of Ijora section of Eko bridge by midnight

The Lagos State Government has announced diversion plans due to the partial closure of Eko Bridge, for rehabilitation works, throughout the duration of the project, with effect from Saturday, March 5, 2022.

The diversion on that route follows the notification received from the Federal Ministry of Works on the commencement of comprehensive repair works on Eko Bridge (Alaka-Apongbon) for a period of 6 months.

This disclosure is contained in a statement signed by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, in which he said that the diversion point is on the Apongbon bound lane of the bridge, with articulated and heavy-duty trucks being barred from using the route due to the nature of the repair works.
