Fed Govt to begin repair work on Third Mainland Bridge

The Third Mainland Bridge will be shut down for repairs for six months, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Olukayode Popoola, has said.

He said the repair would start on July 24 and would be completed in December.

Popoola in a statement yesterday said consultations are on for another phase of repair works to begin on the 11.8km bridge.

He said work will begin on the outward mainland section of the bridge first, adding that the ministry is working with agencies to perfect strategies for traffic control during the period.

The bridge has gone through series of repair works and was last shut in August 2018, for a three-day investigative maintenance check.

There have been reports of some worn-out expansion joints on the bridge, raising concerns over the integrity of the bridge.
