Rehabilitation of the Third Mainland Bridge continues on Thursday


On Thursday, the Federal Government will recommence rehabilitation efforts on the Third Mainland Bridge, as announced.

Mrs. Olukorede Kesha, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, announced this information in a statement released in Lagos on Wednesday.

Kesha, while recognising the potential inconvenience that traffic diversions could cause for motorists, urged the public to exercise forbearance and cooperate.

She stated that traffic would be rerouted in order to facilitate the contractor’s ongoing extensive repairs.

“This will facilitate the prompt completion of repairs on every segment of the bridge and guarantee a prompt handover of a rehabilitated bridge to the general public featuring enhanced riding surfaces and increased comfort,” she explained.

Ahead of the restorations, traffic will be diverted, she said, advising motorists to cooperate with traffic officials and make appropriate travel arrangements.

“Therefore, it is advised that all motorists traveling towards Oworonshoki continue to utilize alternate routes during the morning hours, when the bridge will exclusively reopen for traffic bound for the island.”

“On the contrary, motorists traveling towards the island are recommended to persist in utilizing alternate routes during the afternoon, when the bridge would exclusively be accessible to traffic bound for Oworonshoki.”

“Also, to reduce discomfort during this period, motorists are urged to cooperate with traffic management officials stationed to oversee traffic and guarantee smooth movements,” Kesha continued.

The Federal Government, according to her, was dedicated to enhancing infrastructure for the benefit of motorists.
