Lagos to close Independence Bridge for Repairs

In continuation of its road repair works across the metropolis, the Lagos State Government has announced that the Independence Bridge at Bonny Camp will be partially closed for maintenance works from Sunday, 1st of March to Saturday, 2nd of May, 2020.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, who disclosed this in a statement issued over the weekend, noted that the maintenance work would be focused on the replacement of worn-out expansion joints and laying of asphalt concrete on the bridge to further strengthen the road infrastructure.

According to him, “Due to the need to partially close the road to motorists in order to ensure uninterrupted construction work, road users are advised to utilise Falomo Bridge to access their desired destinations”.

He added that the on-going construction work by the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing in the axis has progressed steadily to ensure ease of movement for motorists driving along the Bonny Camp and Onikan Road corridors.

While appealing to road users to comply with the directives of Traffic Officers and road signs to minimise inconvenience to motorists, the Commissioner solicited the cooperation of all Lagosians plying the axis in ensuring a speedy completion of the project.
