The Lagos State government has announced plans to partially close down the Marine Bridge for three months for emergency repair works on the Apapa outward section of the bridge.

Oladeinde explained that this was necessary to maintain the bridge’s infrastructure which included removal and cleaning of the existing expansion joints to prevent further deterioration.

He added that during the period of the partial closure, traffic would be diverted to alternative routes, and the Apapa inward lane would be divided into two to allow the counter flow of traffic.

According to the commissioner, palliative works have been completed on alternative routes to ease movement and ameliorate the effect of the expected traffic.

“Motorists inwards Apapa are advised to make use of Total underneath the bridge to connect Naval Dockyard to Danlami to Leventis corridor and/or to connect Marine Beach by Mobil through Federal Fire Service/Obanikoro to Naggaf/North Avenue to Wharf Road.

“Motorists from Ajegunle inwards Iganmu/or Ijora should use Agbo Malu to Tego Barracks to Total underneath the bridge and ascend Marine Bridge to connect their desired destinations,” the statement said.

Oladeinde assured motorists that officials of the Traffic Management Personnel (LASTMA) would be deployed to the alternative routes to manage traffic burdens there.

He urged those that ply such corridors to be patient with the utmost understanding, saying efforts were being made to provide quality and safe road infrastructure for all residents of the state.
