Repairs on Third Mainland Bridge to resume on Jan. 9 - LASG

Repairs to the Third Mainland Bridge will resume on January 9

The Lagos State Government said the Third Mainland Bridge will be closed for repairs on Tuesday, January 9.

The bridge was closed for repairs in November 2023, but reopened on December 21 to ease traffic over the Christmas period.

The state Commissioner for Transport, Oluwaseun Osiyemi, in a statement released on January 4, said the closure was to allow the Federal Ministry of Works’ repair work to continue on some sections of the bridge.

He said the Iyana Oworonshoki-Adeniji Adele section would be closed for effective repairs to the entire stretch of the bridge.

“The closure is part of the ongoing works that began in November 2023, with a focus on fixing the ramps, and now the remaining parts of the bridge will also be repaired,” he stated.

Osiyemi said steps had been taken to ease the burden of displacement.

He said that from 12pm to 12pm the bridge will be open to travelers arriving on the Mainland, while those wishing to travel from the Island to the Mainland are advised to use the Eko Bridge.

“Conversely, from 12pm to midnight, motorists will be able to access the bridge from the Island to the Mainland while motorists from the Mainland to the Island will have to use the Eko Bridge.

“These times were selected to match peak period traffic flow and reduce travel stress.

“Please cooperate with our traffic management officers who will be assisting. Thank you for your usual understanding and cooperation. Let’s work together to keep our roads safe,” he said.
