Oshodi Flyover Road Reopened
Movement of vehicles can now flow as usual as the road in Oshodi has been reopened after partial restriction of movement on the flyover to enable it advance the construction of the transport interchange.
The road, closed on Sunday evening to allow for the construction of Oshodi Transport Interchange skywalk, was reopened on Wednesday.
The contractor handling the project, Planet Projects Limited, has now completed the hoisting of Skywalk Bridge linking terminals one and two of the interchange.
Lagos State government, through the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, Mr Taiwo Salaam commended motorists and residents for their understanding and cooperation while the hoisting of the skywalk bridge lasted.
Also the Managing Director of Planet Projects, Mr. Biodun Otunola said the hoisting of the pedestrian bridge of the Oshodi transport interchange was a significant milestone in the construction of the project, saying that all hands were on deck to ensure the interchange is delivered between October and November, 2018.
“This bridge is the longest free-standing bridge in the history of this country. It spanned 53.2metres. It is only supported at the two ends without any support at the middle and it is part of the skywalk for the Oshodi Transport Interchange.
“This particular one links terminal one and terminal two. We also have another one that is linking terminals two and three and that is about 155metres long. The plan is that people can move from one end of the terminal to another be it from terminal one, two and three and then the nature of the terminal is such that we have six lifts and one escalator, and so in all we have 18 lifts and three escalators.
“For anyone to access each of the sky bridge, you have to use the lift and we also have staircase for emergency exit. The skywalk is part of the features of the Oshodi Transport Interchange designed to make travel pleasurable, enjoyable, safe and more comfortable for commuting Lagosians,” Otunola said.
