Lagos State announces traffic diversion for installation of truck barrier at Dorman Long Bridge


In line with efforts to forestall incessant articulated vehicle accidents which have claimed lives and property on some bridges in Lagos, the state government has announced traffic diversion on the night of Saturday, October 7, 2023, for the installation of truck barrier on Dorman- Long Bridge between truck barrier 10.00 pm to 7.00 am.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi, in a statement released on Thursday, said that the following alternative routes will be available to motorists during the diversion:

i. Motorists from Western Avenue inbound Ikorodu Road will be diverted to Empire Road/ Jibowu to continue their journeys.

ii. Motorists from Western Avenue can alternately use Agege Motor Road to link Mushin and proceed to their desired destinations.

The state government therefore enjoined motorists to be patient as the brief closure of the bridge is planned for nighttime as part of a traffic management strategy to avert further accidents and loss of lives.

The state government has however noticed the continuous damage to truck barriers and has therefore warned again that henceforth, any driver who runs into them will face the full wrath of the Law.
