The Lagos State Government has announced the closure of the Marine Bridge Road, that is Inward Ijora, in preparatory for the commencement of repair works by Federal Ministry of Works.
A statement signed by the Commissioner for Transport, Dr. Dayo Mobereola, said the emergency and immediate closure was to allow the ministry carry out studies to determine the state of the bridge and effect appropriate repairs.
It directs traffic coming from Wharf Base-Point Road to divert at service Lane, that is Marine Beach Road, by Leventis Junction to Link Lilly Pond by Dockyard and ascend Ijora Bridge to continue their journey.
Motorists traveling to Ajegunle are also directed to take a left turn at the second junction under the Apapa Road Bridge to Marine Beach Junction inward Ajegunle or back to Ijora Bridge and continue their journey. The state government, however, said the alternative routes were not to be used by heavy duty vehicles.
