Third Mainland Bridge on

The Federal Government has announced plans for the closure of a section of the Iyana-Oworonshoki-Adeniji Adele stretch of the Third Mainland Bridge. This closure, scheduled to commence in the second week of January 2024, is delineated into two phases, each anticipated to last six weeks.

Mrs. Olukorede Kesha, the Federal Controller of Works, Lagos State, delivered this pivotal announcement, specifying that the closure would kick off at 11:00 am on Tuesday, January 9, 2024. The initial phase of the closure is earmarked for the Lagos Island-bound carriageway of the bridge, forming part of a comprehensive effort to address structural concerns and facilitate necessary repairs.

In light of these impending changes, Kesha earnestly appealed to motorists to conscientiously observe traffic rules and explore alternative routes to mitigate potential inconveniences during the comprehensive repairs on the highway.

The Third Mainland Bridge, spanning a length of 11.8 km and ranking as the second-longest in Africa, has undergone several rounds of rehabilitation in recent times. The forthcoming repairs are strategically designed to target various structural issues and bolster the overall integrity of this critical transportation link.

As part of a detailed travel advisory, motorists are strongly recommended to consider alternative routes during this period. These alternative routes include Ojota-Ikorodu Road-Funsho Williams Avenue-Eko Bridge-Apogbon-CMS and Ojota-Ikorodu Road-Jibowu-Yaba-Oyingbo-Iddo-Carter Bridge-CMS. Another viable route is Gbagada-Anthony-Ikorodu Road-Funsho Williams-Eko Bridge-Apogbon-CMS.

Emphasizing the need for public cooperation, Kesha encouraged motorists to work collaboratively with deployed traffic management officials to ensure the seamless flow of traffic and minimize disruptions throughout the repair duration. The forthcoming repairs represent a critical phase in maintaining the Third Mainland Bridge’s structural soundness, and the understanding and cooperation of the public are deeply appreciated during this essential infrastructure enhancement initiative.
