The Lagos State Government has said it will partially close the Marina Bridge for repairs from 8.00 pm on Saturday, 28th March, 2020 to Saturday, 15th August, 2020.
A statement from the Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, disclosed that the construction works by the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, include the replacement of the worn-out Elastomeric Bearing and Expansion of the Metallic joints on the bridge; construction of Drain Gully; Jacketing; Skin repairs of the Piers and laying of Asphalt.
According to the release, “The repair works, which will span a duration of 20 weeks, will be done in two phases to ease traffic movements. The first half of the construction works will last for the first 10 weeks, thereafter, the second half would commence equally and last for 10 weeks”.
“The closure has been slated between 8.00pm and 8.00am daily to ensure there is a smooth and uninterrupted flow of the repair works, therefore, road users are advised to comply with the traffic diversions to minimise inconveniences in movements, as they will be allowed to ply only the available sides of the roads while the construction works last”, it added.
Lagos State Government, therefore, appealed to residents, especially motorists plying the corridors, to bear the pains as the project is being executed for their safety and seamless movements that will meet the transportation needs of the larger populace.
