The Lagos State Government has announced that the Third Mainland Bridge will be closed to all traffic for three days starting from Saturday the 30th of January to Monday night the 1st of February to enable the final completion of repair works on the double-sized expansion joints.
According to a report from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), this disclosure was made by the Federal Controller of Works Lagos, Mr Olukayode Popoola, on Wednesday, January 27, 2021.
Popoola explained that construction works had reached the stage for casting concrete on additional 3 expansion joints, hence the need to stop all movements on the bridge that could cause vibrations.
While pointing out that the 72 hours closure was to ensure that the concrete sets properly during the curing process to make the rehabilitation works perfect and durable, he appealed for the understanding of Lagos residents as the current administration was passionate about quality infrastructure delivery and safety of road users.
