Update on Lagos Third Mainland Bridge reopening

The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Mr Olukayode Popoola Sunday said the Third Mainland Bridge will no longer be opened on Monday but at the end of February.

Popoola told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone that the bridge would experience one more total closure from Feb. 19 to 21 before completion of the project for the final re-opening by the end of February.

“Third Mainland Bridge will no longer be opened on the 15th of February 2021 as announced earlier on. “In order not to create untold hardship for the motoring public using the Third Mainland Bridge for their daily activities, the contractor is not allowed to close the Third Mainland Bridge during the week to cast concrete. “Lane markings on the completed section must be completed,’’ he said.

“The Federal Ministry of works and Housing regret the inconveniences the extra days may have caused the Lagosians,’’ he said. Popoola explained that the bridge would be totally shutdown from midnight on Feb. 19 to 21st to cast concrete on the last expansion joint.

He said that the concrete would require between three to four days to set before the final preparations to finally re-open the entire bridge to traffic. These processes he said could drag to the end of February when the highway would eventually be opened up. “We are looking at the end of the month for the reopening of the bridge.

That is, end of this February. He said that work was soon to begin on the casting of the last expansion joint on the bridge before the bridge finally reopens to traffic.
