Mrs. Olukorede Kesha, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, stressed that the government is fully prepared to initiate thorough development actions on the bridge, beginning with critical repairs of the damaged sections.
To address the challenges faced by motorists during this period, the Ministry has planned comforting measures to ease the inconvenience.
In her statement, Kesha urged road users to cooperate with traffic management officials and follow all instructions to ensure smooth traffic flow.
The comforting works are scheduled for Sunday, October 22, on the Adeniji bound carriageway. Motorists are encouraged to consider alternative routes whenever possible during this period.
