The statement, issued by Olujimi Hotonu, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, said the restriction would take effect mostly at night.

It also noted that the pedestrian bridge would be pulled down and replaced with a new one “worthy of the status of the state.”

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

“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 statement read.

“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.”
