Alaka bridge closed for 2 nights - ITREALMS

The Lagos State Ministry of Transport has closed the Alaka Bridge inward Eko Bridge to traffic for two nights, Saturday 24th November 2018 from 11:00pm to 5:00am on Sunday 25th November 2018 and also on Monday night 26th November 2018 from 11:00pm to 5:00am on Tuesday 27th November 2018, reports ITREALMS.

The Commissioner for Transportation, Ladi Lawanson, confirmed this in a press statement made available to ITREALMS at the weekend, saying the closure is to carry out emergency rehabilitation of the deteriorated road pavements.

He also advised that in this regard, “only the service lane from the National Stadium will be available to motorists desirous of using the Eko Bridge to connect the Lagos Island. Similarly, motorists can also use the Eric Moore Road through Brewery to exit at Costain.”

Lawanson explained that this exercise does not prevent motorists coming from the Lagos Island using the Alaka Bridge inward Stadium.

The State Government, he said, therefore appealed for caution and cooperation from all road users especially night crawlers by obeying all traffic signs and ensuring smooth traffic flow during the rehabilitation period, which has been deliberately fixed for the night in order to minimize discomfort on road users.

“Finally, the State Government while regretting all inconveniences has directed all relevant Traffic Agencies especially LASTMA to ensure free flow of traffic and security agencies to ensure safety for all workers and materials deployed for the exercise,” he said.
