Lagos postpones planned closure of Third Mainland Bridge



The Lagos State Government has announced the postponement of the planned 2-Sunday traffic diversion on Third Mainland Bridge for palliative works on some of the failed sections of the bridge.

The urgent repair works which had been scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, September 17 and Sunday, September 24, 2023, was postponed due to the heavy downpour experienced in all parts of the metropolis on Saturday, September 16.

This disclosure is contained in a statement signed by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi said the rain has affected the preliminaries of the planned palliative works on the asphalt pavement of the bridge by the Lagos State Public Works Corporation.

Osiyemi assured that a later date which will be subject to weather conditions will be duly communicated for the palliative works. The Transport Commissioner also urged Motorists to continue to access the bridge with observance of safety measures.
