Closure of 3rd Mainland Bridge begins Saturday – Lagos




The Lagos State Government has said the Third Mainland Bridge will be closed to all traffic for three days from Saturday till Monday midnight to enable completion of repair works on the double-sized expansion joints.

The state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement on Thursday, said the bridge repair work was being done to ensure that the set deadline for reopening the entire bridge was met.

Oladeinde explained that alternative routes have been identified for use by motorists to access their desired destinations with minimal discomfort.

“Motorists from Ogudu, Alapere and Gbagada are advised to use Ikorodu Road, Jibowu and Yaba as alternative routes, while Iyana Oworosoki bound traffic from the Lagos Island, Iddo, Oyingbo, Adekunle and Yaba should use Herbert Macaulay Way, Jibowu and Ikorodu road as alternative routes,” he said.

The Commissioner added that the traffic management personnel would be deployed along the affected routes to minimise and address any traffic impediments during the closure. Punch
