The Lagos State Government has announced that traffic will be diverted at the Ijora 7up end of the Marine Bridge from February 2 to May 10 2024, for a comprehensive maintenance of the bridge.
Consequently, the following alternative routes have been mapped out for Motorists during the course of the repairs;
Motorists heading towards Apapa from Marine Bridge are to use, Malu road via Mobil road u-turn to link Marine Bridge Access Ramp (Inbound Apapa) and proceed to Point Road u-turn leading into Marine Bridge (Ijora bound) and follow the Diversion at closed section.
Through this movement they will be able to join the counter flow lane on the Apapa bound lane back to Ijora bound lane after the closed section.
Motorists can utilize Marine Bridge road inward Malu road to make use of the Mobil road u-turn and proceed to Area B/NAGAFF to access Point road u-turn into Marine Bridge (Ijora bound).
Through this movement also they will be able to join the counter flow lane on the Apapa bound lane and divert back to the Ijora bound lane after the closed section.
Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi, the Commissioner for Transportation, has assured that the Traffic Management Personnel will be deployed to the affected routes to minimize inconveniences and improve traffic flow.
