After 11 months it was closed to traffic, the Toyota-Murtala Mohammed Airport Road link bridge has opened to traffic.

The Lagos State government had on January 10, 2021, announced the closure of the bridge following a fire accident that damaged a part of the bridge after a diesel-laden tanker exploded.

Repair works commenced on the damaged bridge after six months of closure and it was meant to open to traffic by the end of September but the government further delayed reopening to carry out additional work.

The road finally opened to traffic today.
