The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Lagos State has warned motorists that Third Mainland Bridge is still under repairs and the diversion plan earlier issued to motorists must be strictly adhered to.
The Corps said flouting traffic rules on diversion at Adeniji inward Iyana Oworo on the Third Mainland Bridge is not allowed.
Lagos State Sector Commander of FRSC, Olusegun Ogungbemide, said in a statement the Corps was disturbed by the recent disruption of law and order where motorists drove against traffic.
“FRSC Lagos boss hereby wishes to warn against such an act, adding that the Lagos Island bound traffic from Iyana Oworo would still experience unhindered movement from 12 a.m. to 1 p.m. and vice versa.
“Motorists should note that orderliness has been restored on the Third Mainland Bridge and other parts of the state.
“Motorists are advised to obey all traffic rules and regulations by abstaining from driving against the flow of traffic ‘One way’ to avoid crash and head on collision.
“Alternative routes for Mainland bound motorists are: Osborne Road Ikoyi to Carter Bridge can access Eko Bridge through Ijora Olopa to Funsho Williams Avenue.
