The Commissioner in his statement expressed that the repairs works will run on a 24hours shift in phases to enable the contractor complete repairs within the estimated time and minimise the expected inconveniences for road users.

Oladeinde further explained that the first stage of the repairs will cover 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.

The Commissioner also revealed that 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.

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.

Oladeinde appealed to the good people of the State to cooperate with the Government by complying with the directives and traffic advisory to allow contractors finish the projects in record time.
