The Federal Government, on Thursday, announced the closure of the Lagos Third Mainland Bridge, starting from midnight on Saturday, October 21, to midnight on 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 the 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 advised motorists to cooperate with the traffic management officials by observing all diversions as directed for seamless movement.
However, motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes where possible during the period of the palliative works as the Adeniji-bound bridge will be closed to traffic from Saturday, October 21 to Sunday 22, 12 midnight.
