The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, on Sunday said that the construction of the Costain bridge would be completed by September.
Hamzat made this known during an inspection tour of the project in Lagos.
“We have come to inspect the project because there will be a need to divert traffic while they are constructing. People cannot pass through this place and we want to ensure that people’s lives are not endangered.
“So, we are here to check and plan on how to divert the traffic around this axis so that people do not go through pain or lock down this area while we do developmental network that is necessary.
“This is to prevent confusion and traffic gridlock while the project is on. It’s something that needs to be done for the development of our state,” he said.
Hamzat noted that the the Ministry of Transportation would sensitise the public on the diversion plans ahead of the time to help people move around with ease.
According to him, this project is about enhancing the movement of people by rail and also by road by replacing one infrastructure with another one.
