Third Mainland Bridge Lagos

Lagos State Ministry of Transportation says the Oworonshoki-bound lane of the Third Mainland Bridge will be closed totally to vehicular movement by midnight on Saturday, February 6 till 7pm on Sunday, February 7 to remove the last expansion joint.

The ministry stated this in a release on Wednesday, adding that the closure is vital to enable the contractor move its equipment to the Oworonshoki bound lane within the given period without any interruption.

Commissioner for Transportation Frederic Oladeinde said the rehabilitation process was being done assiduously to ensure set deadlines were met.

The state advised motorists from Ogudu, Alapere and Gbagada to use Ikorodu Road, Jibowu and Yaba as alternative routes, while Iyana Oworosoki bound traffic from the Lagos Island, Iddo, Oyingbo, Adekunle and Yaba should use Herbert Macaulay Way, Jibowu and Ikorodu road as alternative routes.
