Nigeria’s Federal Government has announced the closure of the Lagos Third Mainland Bridge, starting from midnight of Saturday, October 21, to midnight of Sunday October 22 to carry out repairs.
The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, Mrs Olukorede Kesha, in a statement, said the government was ready to begin comprehensive rehabilitation works on the bridge starting with repairs of the critical portions.
Kesha said the federal government wished to inform the motoring public that it was currently working on plans to carry out comprehensive repairs of Third Mainland Bridge.
However, in order to alleviate the pains currently being experienced on the bridge, the Ministry would be carrying out palliative works on the most critically failed sections along the Adeniji-bound carriageway on Sunday, October 22, preparatory to the comprehensive repair works,” she said.
She advised motorists to cooperate with the traffic management officials by obeying and observing all diversions as directed for seamless movement.
