According to the state Commissioner for Transportation, Frederic Oladeinde, the rehabilitation was in line with the state government’s mandate to ensure effective and efficient transportation through quality road infrastructure.

He further explained that the first stage of the repairs will cover the Victoria Island-bound lane of the bridge which will be closed to traffic, adding that motorists heading towards Victoria Island will be diverted to the Ikoyi bound lanes to create a counter-flow.

“While the Ikoyi bound lane will be closed down for the second stage of rehabilitation works, in a similar fashion, motorists will be diverted to other lanes,” Oladeinde said.

He assured that sufficient signage would be put up to guide motorists as well as traffic management personnel deployed to help motorists navigate their ways home with ease.

He, therefore, appealed to residents to cooperate with the state government by complying with the directives and traffic advisory to allow contractors to finish the projects at record time.
