The Federal Government has postponed indefinitely, the planned closure of Falomo Bridge in Victoria Island for repairs.

Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Mr Olukayode Popoola, on Sunday, told the News Agency of Nigeria in a telephone chat that the decision to suspend the rehabilitation of the bridge was reached after a meeting with relevant stakeholders.
