The road leading to the popular Eko Bridge from Alaka will be closed, the Lagos State Ministry of Transportation has said.
According to a statement issued by the state government, the bridge will be shut down from 11pm on Saturday, November 24, 2018 to 5am on Sunday, November 25, 2018 and also on Monday, November 26, 2018 from 11pm to 5am on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 for emergency rehabilitation of the deteriorated road pavement.
Commissioner for Transportation in Lagos State, Mr Ladi Lawanson, was quoted in the statement as saying that, “Only the service lane from the National Stadium will be available to motorists desirous of using the Eko Bridge to connect the Lagos Island. Similarly, motorists can also use the Eric Moore Road through Brewery to exit at Costain”.
The statement said that the exercise does not deter motorists coming from the Lagos Island using the Alaka Bridge inward Stadium.
It appealed to all road users, especially night crawlers, to exercise caution and obey all traffic signs for smooth traffic flow during the rehabilitation period which has been deliberately fixed for the night in order to minimise discomfort to road users.
The state government said it has directed all relevant agencies, including LASTMA and security personnel, to ensure free flow of traffic and safety of all workers and materials deployed for the exercise.
