He said the arrangement was to ensure the flow of traffic and reduce stress on the road.

It read: “The closure is part of the ongoing work that started in November 2023 focusing on fixing the ramps, and now, the remaining parts of the bridge will also be repaired.

“However, to ease the burden of commuting, the following arrangements have been made;

“1. From 12:00 a.m. to 12 noon, the bridge is open for Mainland Inbound Island travels while those who intend to come from the Island to the Mainland are advised to use Eko Bridge.

2. Conversely, from 12 noon to 12:00 a.m., motorists will be able to access the bridge from the Island to the Mainland while motorists from the Mainland heading towards the Island will have to use Eko Bridge.”
