Lagos closes Adekunle to Adeniji section of Third Mainland Bridge
The Lagos State Government has announced total closure of the Adekunle to Adeniji section of the Third Mainland Bridge for repairs.
This was contained in a statement by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, on Wednesday.
He said the total closure of the Adekunle to Adeniji section of the bridge for the second time would be from midnight of Friday, October 30 to Sunday, November 1, 2020
The statement was titled, ‘Third Mainland Bridge Closure: LASG closes Adekunle-Adeniji axis for the second phase repairs’.
The commissioner assured road users that the section of the bridge between Adekunle and Iyana–Oworo will remain open, as well as the Ebute Metta outbound section into Iyana-Oworo.
The statement read in part, “In furtherance of the partial closure of the Third Mainland Bridge occasioned by the ongoing first phase rehabilitation works nearing completion, the Lagos State Government has announced that there will be a total closure of the Adekunle to Adeniji section of the bridge for the second time from midnight of Friday 30th October to Sunday 1st November 2020.
“The second phase closure of the repair works is coming two weeks behind schedule as a result of delays occasioned by the recent mayhem around the Lagos metropolis.
“It is, however, essential to have it urgently done to prevent vibrations on the bridge during the casting-in-place of the newly installed expansion joints which in turn will allow the special concrete to achieve its required compressive strength.”
