Lagos State Government has informed vehicle owners and drivers in the state of its intention to carry out emergency repairs on Eko Bridge (between Costain and Alaka descent).
A statement issued today by the state commissioner for transportation, Oluwaseun Osinyemi, said the repairs are necessary to avoid the theft of the expansion joint, the replacement
of missing parts and the recasting of the transition concrete around
the expansion joint.
Osinyemi said the bridge will be closed to traffic from 8 a.m tomorrow and will be reopened to traffic by 4 am on Monday 6th November, 2023.
The statement said motorists planning to use the bridge are
consequently advised to use the Costain Ramp to link Alaka
through the Costain Roundabout.
