While aesthetics like markings and solar lights enhance the Oworonshoki end, underwater repairs remain the most critical challenge. The Minister expressed confidence in tackling these issues and announced the mobilization of N7 billion for the Carter Bridge rehabilitation.

Engineer O.I. Kesha, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos state, underscored the extensive underwater damage to the bridges and showcased other federal projects in the region, including sections of the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway and the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
