Third Mainland Bridge Rehabilitation: Restriction Continue Wednesday – FG

The Federal Government has announced that traffic would be restricted from Lagos Island to Iyana Oworo on the Third Mainland Bridge from 12.00 a.m on Wednesday to allow for repairs.

The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, Mrs Olukorede Kesha, disclosed this in a statement Tuesday night in Lagos.

Kesha, who encouraged motorists to cooperate with traffic officials, apologised for any inconvenience that the restrictions might cause motorists.

“The Federal Ministry of Works wish to inform the motoring public that in continuation of the ongoing rehabilitation works on the Third Mainland Bridge, the Island-Iyana Oworo bound traffic will be restricted.

“The restriction will be from the bridge from 12.00 a.m on Wednesday, March 6 to 12-noon on Thursday, March 7, to allow the contractor execute a major aspect of the ongoing repair works on the bridge.

“Consequently, the bridge will not be opened to Iyana-Oworo bound traffic during this period.

“Thus, all road users plying this route are advised to use alternative routes during this period.

“However, Iyana-Oworo to Island bound carriageway will be free for the use of only island bound motorists throughout the period,” she said.
