Third Mainland Bridge to be shut for three days

The Federal Controller of Works Lagos, Mr Olukayode Popoola, on Wednesday said the Third Mainland Bridge will be shut for three days for another round of delicate expansion joints replacement.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the shutdown would take effect from midnight on Friday to midnight on Monday.

He explained that construction works had reached the stage for casting concrete on additional three expansion joints, hence, the need to stop all movements on the bridge that could cause vibrations.

He said the 72 hours closure was to ensure that the concrete sets properly to make the rehabilitation works perfect and durable.

He appealed for the understanding of Lagos residents saying that, the Muhammadu Buhari administration was passionate about quality infrastructure delivery and safety of road users.
