Eko Bridge Will Be Partially Closed For Repairs From June 4, Says Lagos State Government


The Lagos state government has announced a 10-week partial closure of the Eko Bridge for emergency repairs from June 4 to August 13.

In a statement, Frederic Oladeinde, the state commissioner for transportation, said the repairs were necessary to complete the rehabilitation works at the opposite side of the bridge earlier embarked upon by the federal government.

Oladeinde said the closure will be from Costain to Alaka inbound National Stadium.

He said pending the commencement of the rehabilitation works, alternative routes have been made available for motorists to manage traffic during the period of repairs.

“Traffic from Apongbon to Alaka, Stadium, Inner Surulere or Ikorodu Road will be diverted to Eko Bridge to access Costain Roundabout to Iponri through Alaka and Funso Williams Avenue,” he said.

“Similarly, 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.

“Motorists can gain access to Apongbon through CMS Outer Marina Road to connect Ebute Metta Ikorodu Road to access their destinations.

“Motorists from Apongbon can pass through CMS to Outer Marina to Adeniji Adele, Third Mainland Bridge, Adekunle to Herbert Macaulay Way, Jibowu and Ikorodu road will also be available.”

He appealed to residents of the state, especially motorists that ply these corridors, to take note of the diversion routes.

The commissioner asked motorists to bear the inconveniences as the project is aimed at achieving a seamless, safe and efficient transport system that will meet the transportation needs of a larger population.

He advised road users to comply with directives from the state’s traffic management personnel, adding that traffic directions and road signals will be made available to minimise inconveniences that may be experienced while the construction work lasts.
