The Alaka-Costain-Iganmu section of the Eko Bridge (inward Island) will be temporarily closed for 40 days, starting from Sunday, July 23, 2023.
This closure is a collaborative effort between the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing and the Lagos State government.
The decision to close the section was made due to the damage observed on some of the bridge members, which requires immediate repairs.
The Federal Controller Of Works, Lagos, Olukorede Kesha, emphasized that any further delay in the repairs could compromise the integrity and structural stability of the entire bridge.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the Federal Controller Of Works had previously announced intermittent closures during the maintenance work.
Motorists are advised to use alternative routes and cooperate with the Traffic-Management Team deployed to manage traffic.
