FG reopens Eko Bridge in Lagos


The Federal Government has reopened the Eko Bridge in Lagos State.

The bridge had been under repairs to traffic, but will now be accessible from Friday, August 13.

This was confirmed by Olukayode Popoola, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, in a statement on Thursday night.

Popoola said the 10-week rehabilitation works on Eko Bridge were completed on schedule.

He also said traffic would be diverted for the rehabilitation of the burnt Lagos Airport flyover from August 13.

“The Alaka to Costain section of Eko bridge which was closed to traffic since 4th June, 2021 will now be opened on Friday 13th Aug. 2021.

“The Honorable Minister of Works and Housing thanks the motoring public for their cooperation while the rehabilitation work was ongoing,” he said.

He, however, noted that additional works to be carried out on the Eko bridge would not require closure.

The Eko Bridge was shut on June 4, with traffic diverted for the second phase of the rehabilitation of the Costain-bound section of the bridge.
