Lagos govt to close Third Mainland Bridge September 17



FG set to shut down Third Mainland bridge

The Lagos state government has confirmed that the Third Mainland Bridge will undergo repair work this month.

Alternate routes for commuters have also been announced.

The permanent secretary of the transportation ministry, Abdulhafiz Toriola, said repair of the pothole-riddled sections of the bridge will be carried out in two days: September 17 and 24.

The remedial work will start at 7am each day and end at 7pm.

The statement described the repair as a “palliative work” by the state government in collaboration with the federal government.

Toriola said the repair will be in two phases, noting that the Iyana Oworonshoki inward Adeniji Adele/Lagos Island section will be the initial point of attention.

“The proposed works will be strictly executed in two phases with phase one focusing on only the most critical sections on the Iyana Oworonshoki inward Adeniji Adele/Lagos Island,” the statement reads.

“The palliative works were scheduled for Sundays to minimize inconveniences for motorists.”
