Lagos to close Third Mainland Bridge Friday night

The Lagos State Government has announced a total closure of the Adekunle to Adeniji section of the Third Mainland Bridge for repairs.

Commissioner for Transportation, Frederic Oladeinde, made the announcement in a statement.

The closure of would be from midnight of Friday, October 30 to Sunday, November 1, 2020

The section of the bridge between Adekunle and Iyana–Oworo will remain open, as well as Ebute Metta outbound section into Iyana-Oworo.

Oladeinde explained that the second phase closure of the repair works is coming two weeks behind schedule.

The official said the delay was caused by the recent violence around Lagos.

“It is, however, essential to have it urgently done to prevent vibrations on the bridge during the casting-in-place of the newly installed expansion joints which in turn will allow the special concrete to achieve its required compressive strength”, he added

Oladeinde said the repair works were slated for weekends to minimise inconveniences that may arise from the total closure

He assured that transportation management officers will ensure a smooth flow of traffic.
