Third Mainland Bridge

The Federal Ministry of Work will embark on a total closure of the Third Mainland Bridge for 24 hours on Wednesday, February 28 to 12 noon on Thursday, February 29, to allow the contractor execute a major aspect of the ongoing repair works on the bridge.

The closure by the Federal Ministry of Works was announced in a statement by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi. The commissioner advised all road users to use alternative routes already provided during this period as the bridge would not be opened to traffic for 24-hours.

Osiyemi assured road users that the traffic management officials would be on ground to manage traffic and minimise inconveniences.

Repair works have been ongoing on the bridge since January with partial closures for in and outbound traffics.
