The Federal Government has approved the reopening of the Marine Beach Bridge and the Eko Bridge in Lagos State.

The government had shut the Eko Bridge and Marine Beach Bridge in March and May respectively for repairs while declaring it unsafe for public use.

Also, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Mr Olukayode Popoola, had announced that the ongoing emergency rehabilitation of the EkoBridge linking Alaka is almost completed and will be ready for use in October.

However, the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, SAN, in a statement by the ministry’s Director of Press and Publicity, Boade Akinola, on Saturday, directed that both bridges be reopened to traffic on Monday, October 19, 2020.
