Third Mainland Bridge To Be Fully Reopened February 15 – Fashola
Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has confirmed that Third Mainland Bridge will be fully reopened to traffic by February 15.
The Minister gave the update on Thursday during an inspection of construction work on major roads and bridges in Lagos State.
Fashola and his team visited the section of the Apapa-Oshodi expressway engulfed by fire when a petrol tanker burst into flames.
The former Lagos State Governor expressed that the partial closure of the bridge is delaying the scheduled maintenance on Falomo bridge.
Once the third mainland bridge is reopened, we will move to Falomo bridge and replace the expansion joints.
The Third Mainland Bridge has been partially shut since July 24 for repair works.
The bridge had been scheduled to reopen fully in January. However two weeks of the time for the project was lost to the #EndSARS protests necessitated a push in the completion date, according to the Ministry of Works and its contractors.
The bridge is reputed to be the busiest, in terms of vehicular traffic, in the country.
