RESIDENTS IN LAGOS IMPLORED TO PLAN THEIR MOVEMENT AS LAGOS STATE GOVERNMENT PLANS TO CLOSE APAPA BRIDGE
The Lagos State Government on Thursday announced the closure of a part of Marine Bridge, Apapa for four months for emergency repair.
A statement issued by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde said the closure of the bridge would begin from Saturday, 20 August to 20 December, 2022.
He said the closure was due to the notification received from the Federal Ministry of Works on the ongoing emergency repair works of the Marine Bridge.
Oladeinde said the closure would affect the Apapa outbound lane of the bridge and thus released traffic diversion plan.
“According to the rehabilitation schedule contained in the notification, traffic outbound Apapa will be diverted to the inbound lane to give way for a contra flow as the Apapa outbound lane will be closed for repairs,” he said.
Oladeinde assured that the State’s Traffic Management Agency, LASTMA would be fully on ground to direct traffic in addition to traffic guides to ameliorate the inconveniences.
He implored Motorists to be patient as the measures taken are aimed at providing quality and safe road infrastructure for everyone.
