Lagos to close Eko Bridge Saturday till Monday for repairs

The Lagos state government has announced that it will be closing the Eko Bridge, between Costain and Alaka descent, to carry out emergency repairs. This was contained in a press statement made available on Friday.

The bridge will be closed on Saturday, November 4, 2023, by 4:00 am. and reopened on Monday, November 6, 2023.

The statement said the repairs are necessary to avoid the complete vandalisation and theft of the expansion joint as well as the replacement of missing parts and the recasting of the transition concrete around the expansion joint.

“While assuring that the bridge will be reopened as planned, we would like to give assurances that adequate traffic and security personnel will be deployed to the construction zones and the alternative routes; motorists are urged to cooperate with them, exercise patience and observe safety measures,”.

“Motorists planning to use the bridge are consequently advised to use the Costain Ramp to link Alaka through the Costain Roundabout,” the statement signed by the Lagos state commissioner for transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi, read.
