The Lagos State government has announced that Marina Bridge will be partially closed for routine maintenance work.
The state government have announced that the closure will be from Monday, 17th January to Saturday, 2nd April 2022.
Rehabilitation of Marina Bridge Commences
This revelation was made by the Lagos state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde.
The Commissioner revealed that the temporary closure of the Marina bridge would be in two phases: the Apapa Outbound, which will be repaired between 17th January and 19th March 2022, and the Apapa Inbound section of the bridge between 10th March 2nd April 2022.
Traffic outbound Apapa will be diverted to allow traffic flow between RRS point and Total Bridge.
Motorists using lighter vehicles will be diverted to Marine Beach by Mobil Filling Station to link Ijora Bridge.
Otherwise, they are to use the Service Lane by Leventis to connect Naval Dockyard to link Total Under Bridge and continue their journeys.
Oladeinde noted that during the second phase of rehabilitation, the inbound Apapa traffic would be diverted to allow traffic contraflow between Total Bridge and RRS Point.
He also said that motorists using lighter vehicles would be allowed to descend towards Total Under Bridge and use Fire Service Road to connect Marina Beach by Mobil Filling Station.
Those heading towards Apapa will detour and connect Area B through NAGAFF using Mobil Filling Station Service Lane.
The Commissioner noted that repair works have already been carried out on alternative routes to manage traffic diversion.
Oladeinde implores motorists to be cautious during the repair works as the project aims to provide quality and safe roads for everyone in the state.
