Eko Bridge maintenance requires 1.2m Euros in equipment – FG

Senator David Umahi, Minister of Works, said 1.2 million Euros in equipment will be imported to maintain the Lagos Eko Bridge.

On Sunday in Abuja, Federal Ministry of Works Assistant Director of Information Clement Ezeorah announced this.

He said the minister made the announcement while working at Lagos State’s Third Mainland Bridge, Carter, Falomo, Iddo, Eko, Marina, and Iganmu bridges.

He said the minister, ministry heads, and contractors visited the bridges on Saturday.

Ezeorah said that the minister said Eko Bridge’s deck would be opened for maintenance.

Umahi praised President Buhari’s bridge development, saying that the Second Mainland Bridge (Eko Bridge) had two issues.

Eko Bridge has two issues: lack of maintenance and bearing wear. Lots of air spaces, although the former administration did great work.

“We are pushing for more workers and equipment to site, so work will finish in 2024.

“We will not have any truck coming into Lagos Island without Eko Bridge,” the minister added.

Umahi said the two-section Third Mainland Bridge needed extensive upkeep, especially by the Federal Government, according to Ezeorah.

The minister said successive Federal Government administrations before President Muhammadu Buhari neglected the bridge, causing it to deflect.

He added that the institution has gotten official attention since President Bola Tinubu became Lagos official governor.
