LASG announces traffic diversion for repair of truck barrier at Ojuelegba bridge, which was recently damaged again.
Earlier urged drivers to be aware of truck barriers for articulated vehicles installed at Stadium, Ojuelegba and Dorma long Bridges.
The Lagos State Government has announced traffic diversion on the night of Monday, 2nd October, 2023 from 10.00 pm to 6.00 am for repair of truck barrier at Ojuelegba Flyover Bridge which was recently damaged by articulated trucks again.
In the press release, the Lagos State Government listed the following alternative routes for motorists during the proposed repair works at Ojuelegba:
“Motorists from Eko Bridge/Constain/Iponri inbound Ojuelegba/Alhaji Masha Road will be diverted to the service lane from Alaka via the National Stadium gate to link Barracks or Alhaji Masha Road to continue their journeys.
“Motorists from Eko Bridge via Costain and those from Apapa Road going through Iponri will make use of Iponri Estate road to link Bode Thomas via Adeniran Ogunsanya to Shitta Roundabout for their desired destinations.
“Motorists are implored to be patient as the brief closure of the bridge is planned for nighttime as part of a traffic management strategy to avert further accidents and loss of lives”.
Earlier this month, the Lagos State Government urged truck drivers to be aware of the height restriction barriers (truck barriers) for articulated vehicles installed at Stadium, Ojuelegba and Dorma long Bridges.
A statement signed by Engr. Abdulhafiz Toriola, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation revealed that trucks still run into them, damaging the facilities, despite the fact that signages have been mounted to alert truck drivers of their presence.
The barriers were mounted along the route following a series of stakeholders’ meetings held to forestall incessant articulated vehicle accidents that have claimed lives and property.
