Lagos Govt To Close Popular Bridge for 41 days

The Lagos State Government has declared the closure of Marine Bridge for a 41-day period, starting from November 10 to December 21, 2023. This temporary closure is to facilitate repair work by the Federal Ministry of Works.

The Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi, assured motorists that alternative routes have been designated to minimize disruptions during this period. Specifically, drivers heading to Mobil Road from Ijora/Apapa Road will be redirected to Ijora, guiding them to the Total Access Ramp leading to Malu Road, which then connects to Mobil Road for their intended destinations.

Osiyemi added that motorists going to Ijora/Apapa would be diverted to the Apapa bound ramp of the Bridge to make a U-turn at Point Road Junction inwards Marine Bridge to access their desired destinations.

“In the same vein, motorists can make use of Marine Bridge Access Road to Area B and make a U-turn at Point Junction Road towards Marine Bridge to continue their Journeys,” he said.

Osiyemi assured that Traffic Personnel from the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority will be deployed to manage traffic flow and minimize inconveniences.

He further appealed to motorists for their patience while plying the diversion routes.
