Lagos State Government on Wednesday explained how it intends to divert traffic during the  repair works on Third Mainland Bridge which is expected to commence on July 1.
At a press conference in Bagauda Kaltho press centre in Alausa, the state Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Obafemi Hamzat, his counterpart in Transport, Kayode Opeifa and Information and Strategy, Adeyemi Ibirogba explained that there will be no closure but diversion of traffic on the bridge to reduce the suffering of residents.
Opeifa, who spoke on the traffic management strategy, said diversion on the bridge will occur between 12 midnight and 12:00noon.
 “In the morning that is between 00:00am and 12:00noon traffic will be diverted for those coming from Lagos Island to the mainland, at Adeniji Adele. Motorists are expected to divert to Carter Bridge and thereafter proceed to Iddo where the redistribution will take place.”
 While inward Lagos island traffic diversion will commence from 12 noon from Anthony Oworoshoki inter change.
He said the two scenarios were critical measures taken to ensure flow of vehicular traffic becomes very smooth throughout the period of repair.
“We have also examined other roads that would be used during the period and we have structured our strategy towards these roads.
“Some of these routes were not available in 2008, when a similar repair on the bridge took place but today, they are all available. Agege Motor Road is one of such roads and it will play a big role in the interchangeable activity.
“So also, Herbert Macaulay that was under construction has been completed. Previously, the traffic radio was not available but now it is available to keep resident with information about the traffic situation and guide them on the route to take in the course of carrying out their activities,” the commissioner explained.
Hamzat, who explained the modalities for the repair, appealed for residents’ cooperation, saying the repair was necessary as it concerns the safety of Nigerians.
