The Lagos state government on Thursday announced a partial restriction of movement on Ikorodu road on Saturday and Sunday to enable it replace the dilapidated and disused steel pedestrian bridge at Fadeyi Bus Stop with a new footbridge.

The state government, in a statement issued by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Olujimi Hotonu, said that in its continuous drive to protect the lives of pedestrians on the highway, the disused pedestrian bridge would be pulled down to give way for a new one worthy of the status of the state.

Hotonu further said that the restriction would be in effect on the nights of the two days.

He added that to effect the removal of the bridge, the state government said the main carriage lanes of the Ikorodu Road would be closed to traffic for two nights on Saturday, 23rd September, between 11pm and 6am, and Sunday 24th between 11pm and 4am, while the service lanes will be open to traffic.

The government also said all traffic both inward Lagos and outward Ojota will be diverted to the service lanes.

The statement read: “To effect the removal of the bridge, the state government said the main carriage lanes of the Ikorodu road would be closed to traffic for two nights on Saturday, September 23rd, between 11pm and 6am, and Sunday, 24th, between 11pm and 4am, while the service lanes will be open to traffic.”

“The notice of partial restriction of the road became expedient to enlighten motorists and other road users to utilize alternative routes to avoid delay as well as obey traffic officers deployed on the road to ease movement.”

While soliciting for the cooperation of all road users, the government said it had put in place effective traffic management strategies to control the traffic during the period of closure.

It regretted the inconveniences the partial restriction would cause, adding that “the ultimate goal of the plan is to safeguard lives and improve traffic along the corridor.”
