FG Shutdown Bridge on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway


The renowned Kara Bridge on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway is partially closed for integrity test to begin on Saturday.

An interview by reporters the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Mr Kayode Popoola, on the reason for the abrupt closure was following a recent tanker fire that occurred there.

He said “Kara Bridge got burnt and we have to carry out integrity test. The test will be done by Julius Berger Nigeria Ltd.

“Hopefully, they will remove the wreckage today and then we put the barriers there, then the work will start tomorrow.

“There is going to be partial closure of one lane in the sense that instead of three lanes, traffic will now be restricted to only two lanes, that is, the Ibadan-bound lane.

“The work will be done on Saturday and Sunday, they would finish hopefully on Sunday.
“We advise motorists to please slow down and allow us to work so that avoidable accidents can be avoided,’’
