Federal Government plans to close Third Mainland Bridge for repairs tomorrow

The Federal Government yesterday said consultations were ongoing for the closure of Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos for repairs.

Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Adedamola Kuti, who disclosed this in Lagos, said the Ministry of Works would hold a meeting with stakeholders today to discuss how to manage traffic during the repairs.

He, however, said the bridge may be “shut by midnight tomorrow to carry out tests and some repairs and open it to traffic by midnight on Sunday.”

According to him, stakeholders attending the meeting to discuss the repairs include traffic regulatory agencies, transport unions, truck owners and drivers’ unions, law enforcement agents, among others.

“The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved the maintenance work on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State.

“The project has taken off already and in carrying out the work, we may at certain times be shutting down the bridge for maintenance.

“At the moment, we may begin with tests on the bridge. So, we may shut it by midnight on Thursday and carry out tests and some repairs and open it to traffic by midnight on Sunday,” he said.

Kuti, who disclosed that six other damaged bridges across the state are already undergoing maintenance and rehabilitation, said: “We have contracts on maintenance of some of the bridges in Lagos.

“We are completing maintenance work on the expansion joints on the Coconut Bridge.”

The controller, who added that some tests had been carried out on the Otedola Bridge, said the tests revealed that the bridge was safe for use and that the contractors would soon attend to the bridge.
