Third Mainland Bridge closes for repairs July 24
The Federal Government is to close the Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos for six months beginning from July 24.
The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Olukayode Popoola, made the disclosure in the metropolis.
He said consultations were ongoing for another round of repairs on the 11.8-kilometre facility.
Popoola said the work would start on the outward section of the infrastructure, as the ministry had begun interfacing with relevant agencies for free flow of traffic during the period.
The bridge has undergone several face-liftings, and was last closed in August 2018 for a three-day maintenance check.
