THE Federal Ministry of Works has announced it will embark on the repair works for the damaged Expansion Joints on the Long Bridge along the Lagos-Shagamu Expressway beginning from Monday, 4th of March 2024 simultaneously on both bounds of the bridge. 

As a result of the foregoing, traffic leaving and entering Lagos through the Long Bridge will be narrowed to two lanes on both sides of the bridge to enable the contractor handling the repair works to commence works on the other two lanes of the carriageways.

“Thus, all road users are advised to be patient and adhere to lane discipline on both approaches to the Long Bridge and around the narrowed sections on the bridge”,  read a statement E-signed by Engr. (Mrs.) O. I. Kesha, Federal Controller of Works, Lagos.

The statement also said that the earth road beside the Shagamu bound carriageway will be made motorable to serve as a complimentary road. Other road users were advised to use alternative routes.

Motorists were further advised to cooperate with the traffic management officials deployed to manage traffic and ensure hitch-free movements to minimize discomfort during the duration of the repair works.

“While thanking the general public for their continued cooperation and understanding, please note that all inconveniences are highly regretted”, the statement read.
