Lagos govt announces traffic diversion on Apapa Marine Bridge

FG reopens Leventis Bridge


Lagos State Government has announced traffic diversion for Apapa-bound lanes from Sunday February 26 to Sunday February 28, 2023, amid notification from the Federal Ministry of Works on the ongoing emergency repair works on Marine Bridge.

Lagos Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement issued Thursday, said traffic heading towards Leventis/Apapa from Ijora will be diverted to the Marine Bridge – Marine Bridge Road – Mobil Road U-turn to connect Leventis Service Lane to access Leventis.

“Alternatively, the Marine Bridge Total Ramp inwards to Malu Access Road will be open to traffic for motorists to continue their journeys as aforementioned,” he said.

The commissioner assured personnel of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) would be deployed to direct traffic in the area, stressing that this was in addition to the installation of traffic guides to ameliorate difficulties that might be faced by motorists.

He, however, implored motorists to obey and cooperate with the government as the rehabilitation works were aimed at providing quality and safe road infrastructure for everyone across the state.
