LASG: Third Mainland Bridge repairs resume on Jan 9

The Lagos State Government announced on Monday that the Third Mainland Bridge will undergo closure starting on Tuesday, January 9, to facilitate ongoing repairs. This decision comes after the bridge was initially closed in November 2023 and reopened on December 21 to alleviate traffic congestion during the festive season.

Mr Oluwaseun Osiyemi, the Commissioner for Transportation in the state, issued a statement explaining that the closure is imperative to allow the Federal Ministry of Works to continue repair works on specific sections of the bridge. The focus will be on the Iyana Oworonshoki-Adeniji Adele section, aiming for comprehensive repairs.

“The closure is part of the ongoing work that started in November 2023, focusing on fixing the ramps, and now, the remaining parts of the bridge will also be repaired,” Osiyemi noted.

To mitigate the impact on commuters, specific arrangements have been made. Between 12 am and 12 noon, the bridge will be accessible for Mainland-bound travelers heading to the Island. During this period, individuals intending to travel from the Island to the Mainland are advised to use the Eko Bridge.

Conversely, from 12 noon to 12 am, the bridge will be open for motorists traveling from the Island to the Mainland. Mainland-bound motorists during this timeframe are urged to utilize the Eko Bridge for their commute.

Osiyemi emphasized that the chosen timings align with peak traffic periods to minimize travel stress. He urged motorists to cooperate with traffic management officials who will be deployed to assist during the closure.

“Please cooperate with our traffic management officials who will be helping out. Thanks for your usual understanding and cooperation. Let’s work together to keep our roads safe,” he concluded.
