“Let me thank the people of Lagos, the governor of Lagos, and the Lagos administration once more for their patience and understanding as we close this segment of the bridge for nine weeks beginning June 4th.

“The goal is to keep this infrastructure working for us.

“This is also a generational endeavor since this bridge hasn’t had this kind of maintenance since around 1975 or thereabouts when it was erected, which is roughly 46 years,” he explained.

Fashola, claimed that personnel working beneath and on top of the bridge were employed, and that 37 bridges around the country were being maintained at the same time.
