FRSC explains traffic diversion during 3rd Mainland Bridge closure by Mike Ochonma
Diversion and safety precaution are imminent owing to the emergency rehabilitation on the third mainland bridge in Lagos, Boboye Oyeyemi, corps marshal, Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi says.
The federal government had announced plans to shut down the third mainland bridge for maintenance work from July 24, 2020 to January 24, 2021, with the first phase of the project covering the rehabilitation of the Oworonshoki bound lanes. The next phase of another three months for the second phase would cover the repairs of the Lagos bound lanes.
Oyeyemi said other routes had been identified for motorists plying from Ikoyi, through Osborne as a result of the closure.
He further said that motorists from Obalende on Lagos Island intending to use the bridge “are advised to navigate through Carter Bridge-Iddo-Oyingbo-Adekunle-Herbert Macaulay way-Jibowu-Ikorodu road and connect their destination’’.
Alternatively, he said, they should pass through Carter Bridge-Ijora Causeway (Ijora Olopa by LAWMA Office) Eko Bridge through Funsho Williams Avenue-Ikorodu Road for further transit.
“Motorists from Lekki/Victoria Island intending to use the third mainland bridge are advised to use the Ozumba Mbadiwe road or Ahmadu Bello Way-Bonny Camp Independence Bridge (Mekunwen Bridge)-Onikan (by Zone 2 Police Zonal Headquarters)-Marina Bridge-Apongbon-Eko Bridge-Funsho Williams Avenue to Ikorodu and so forth.
“For road users driving inwards Adekunle from Adeniji and from Lekki/Ikoyi/Obalende/Lagos Island, they are advised to Link Cater Bridge-Iddo-Oyingbo-Ebute Metta-Adekunle to advance further.’’
Oyeyemi advised motorists intending to use the bridge during the maintenance period to endeavour to go through the alternative routes identified.
“The expected diversion for Phase A in the morning from 12 a.m. to 1p.m., motorists plying from Oworonshoki to Lagos Island traffic will only be on the Lagos island bound lane.
“In the afternoon from 1p.m. to 12 a.m., motorists travelling from Lagos Island to Oworonshoki traffic will only be on the Lagos island bound lane,’’ he said.
