The Lagos State Government on Thursday announced that the Third Mainland Bridge would be shut for two consecutive Sundays in a bid to embark on palliative works on the failed sections of the Third Mainland Bridge.

This was disclosed by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Engr. Abdulhafiz Toriola who stated that it is a collaboration between the state Public Works Corporation, LPWC and the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing.

According to Toriola, the work would take place on Sunday 17 and Sunday 24, September 2023, between the hours of 7.00 a.m. to 7.00 p. m., each Sunday.

“The proposed works will be strictly executed in two phases with phase one focusing on only the most critical sections on the Iyana Oworonshoki inward Adeniji Adele/Lagos Island.”

Toriola explained that Sundays were chosen for the palliative works to minimize inconveniences for motorists.

Consequently, a travel advisory was released to ensure seamless movement of traffic.

Toriola, therefore advised motorists to ply the following alternative routes made available during the rehabilitation works which are; Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Alapere/Ogudu axis inwards Lagos Island will be diverted towards Gbagada-Oshodi Expressway to link Ikorodu Road/Funsho Williams Avenue to access Eko Bridge and Lagos Island.

Motorists from Lagos Mainland going through Herbert Macaulay Road (Adekunle axis) inwards Lagos Island via Third Mainland Bridge will be diverted towards Muritala Mohammed Way to make use of Carter Bridge to link Lagos Island.

He, therefore, urged motorists to be patient and observe safety measures during the palliative works on the asphalt pavement of the bridge.
