Written by broadstreet on August 12, 2022
The Lagos State Government has announced traffic diversion plan on the Marine Bridge for the Apapa outbound lane of the bridge for a period of about 4 months.
The partial closure of the Bridge which would be from Saturday, August 20, to December 20, 2022, follows a notification from the Federal Ministry of Works on the ongoing emergency repairs among the bridge.
This disclosure is contained in a statement signed by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transport, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, who said traffic outbound Apapa will be diverted to the inbound lane to give way for a contraflow as the Apapa outbound lane will be closed for repairs.
The statement partly reads, ‘’Following the notification received from the Federal Ministry of Works on the ongoing emergency repair works along Marine Bridge, the Lagos State Government has released a traffic diversion plan for the Apapa outbound lane of the Bridge from Saturday, 20th August to 20th December, 2022.’’
The Commissioner implored motorists to exercise patience in the axis as the measures taken are aimed at providing quality and safe road infrastructure for everyone.
