The Lagos Third Mainland Bridge is set to undergo a 24-hour closure, a decision announced by the Federal Government. This temporary shutdown is slated to commence at midnight on Saturday, October 21, and conclude at midnight on Sunday, October 22.
The primary aim of this closure is to address long-overdue repairs on the bridge, vital for its structural integrity.
Mrs. Olukorede Kesha, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, provided insights into the government’s comprehensive rehabilitation plan for the Third Mainland Bridge. The first phase of this initiative will prioritize the critical areas in dire need of repair.
In her statement, Kesha underscored the government’s dedication to minimizing inconvenience for commuters. To achieve this, palliative work will be executed on the most severely impacted sections of the Adeniji-bound carriageway on Sunday, October 22, as a precursor to the broader repair project.
She implored drivers to collaborate with traffic management officials and adhere to any diversions that may be in place to ensure the seamless flow of traffic during this period. Additionally, motorists are encouraged to explore alternative routes whenever possible, as the Adeniji-bound lanes of the bridge will be inaccessible to traffic from Saturday, October 21 until midnight on Sunday, October 22.
