Lagos state government has announced its plan to partially close the Marine Beach Bridge located by Total Gas, inwards Apapa for five months which will take effect from Wednesday, May 27 till Wednesday, October 21.
This was according to a statement by the Commissioner for Transportation, Frederic Oladeinde, where he stated that the closure is to enable repair work on the bridge.
“Motorists inwards Wharf Road will be diverted to the other section of the bridge for vehicles exiting Apapa.
“A contraflow of 200 metres will be put in place for vehicles to realign with a proper direction inwards Ajegunle or Wharf Road, Apapa, in order to ensure that motorists descending to Total Gas underbridge will drive without any hindrance,” Oladeinde said.
The Commissioner noted that the officers of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) and other State law enforcement agencies will be deployed to the axis to ameliorate inconveniences that might arise from the closure.
Oladeinde, therefore, appealed to vehicle owners and residents of the area to cooperate with the traffic management officers during and after the period of the construction.
