It has been serving the country for decades now and it is only a preventive measure aimed at avoiding a possible futuristic disaster should there be a shake in its foundations or even a collapse of the age long bridge
The closure was formerly announced for Friday, July 27 to Sunday, July 29.
Punch, however, reports that the date has been shifted to August 24 to August 26.
This was revealed by the Minister of Power, 7Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola. He said:
The shift was done in order to give succour and relief to the people of Lagos State and other inter-state road users and support the efforts of the state government.
We will bring you details as soon as there is any on the situation.
