“According to the repair schedule contained in the notification, the diversion point is on the Apongbon bound lane of the Eko bridge. Articulated and Heavy-duty Trucks will be barred from using the bridge due to the nature of the repair works.
“They will therefore be diverted to Costain Roundabout to access their desired destinations, while smaller vehicles inbound Apongbon from Alaka can still utilize the bridge during the course of the repair works.”
