Heads Up Lagosians! More Bridges Will Be Closed
If you drive or commute across Lagos daily, the coming months may not be easy for you.
While Lagosisans are still battling to deal with the closure of the Third Mainland Bridge, the state government has announced that more bridges would be closed for test.
This starts with the tankers on affected bridges being evacuated ahead of the exercise.
The biggest fear for residents is how well the government has perfected alternative arrangements to make life bearable during these periods.
Mr Ladi Lawanson, Commissioner for Transport, said at a news conference in Ikeja on Friday that the exercise would be carried out with residents on their mind.
He apologised to residents over inconveniences resulting from the ongoing closure of the Third Mainland Bridge for the three-day integrity test.
He explained that the test should have been conducted earlier by the Federal Ministry of Works but was shifted because the state government felt the timing was wrong.
“Appeal was made then to the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing and they agreed to the point and it was not closed at that time.
“But now, effective palliatives have been in place for residents to be able to traverse as much as possible.
“We apologise and sympathise with the motorists for any inconveniences it might have caused.
“We are open to feedback from time to time; we apologise for any inconveniences it may have caused the residents,” the commissioner said.
