Third Mainland Bridge To Be Fully Reopened This Weekend

Third Mainland Bridge To Be Fully Reopened This Weekend

The Federal Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has indicated that the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos would be reopened to traffic fully this weekend.

This comes after the bridge was partially closed in July 2020 for repairs. The minister made this known during a radio phone-in program where he said;

“I can tell you now that this weekend, it will be opened definitely. My directors are still in Lagos. The major works have now been finished, so let me say that again by way of information.

Definitely this weekend it will be reopened. I will announce the date toward Friday and the reason why I am holding back the exact date is that we are government.

Any time we say something, people must reliably be able to plan their lives around what we say.

The major works have now been finished, the piles, all the joints, all the bearings, everything is done. The last miles now are the works which were not in the contract but we insisted must be done.

We are asphalting some of the places on the pavement that have been affected by erosion; some of the lane markings have worn away so we want to do that.”
