The Lagos State Statement is to divert traffic at the National Stadium bridge along Funsho William Avenue to enable it to install truck/articulated vehicle barriers for three nights starting Friday, 11 to 14 August 2023 from 10 pm to 6 am daily.
In a statement signed by Mr Abdulhafiz Toriola, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, added that alternative routes have been provided during the installation of the barriers.
“Motorists from Eko Bridge/Constain/Iponri inbound Ojuelegba/Alhaji Masha Road will be diverted to the service lane from Alaka via National Stadium gate to link Barracks or Alhaji Masha Road to continue their journeys.
“Motorists from Eko Bridge via Costain and those from Apapa Road going through Iponri will make use of Iponri Estate Road to link Bode Thomas via Adeniran Ogunsanya to Shitta Roundabout for their desired destinations,” he said.
According to him, motorists are implored to be patient as the temporary closure of the bridge is planned for night time as part of traffic management strategy to avert further accidents and loss of lives.
