Against the earlier projected Tuesday 2nd February opening for the Third Mainland Bridge as a result of the casting of the expansion joints, work has now been completed and the bridge would, therefore, be open a day earlier to vehicular movement, which is by midnight today, Sunday 31st January 2021.
The earlier movement arrangements of 12.00a.m for Lagos Island-bound motorists and 12.00p.m for Mainland bound motorists subsist.
Lagos State Government expresses gratitude to Lagosians, especially those affected by the closure for their understanding, assuring that the Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led administration will continue to drive infrastructural growth in the State.
The government hereby appeals to residents for cooperation as all other ongoing rehabilitation projects will be completed in a very short while. The benefits, including safety, are for all and sundry.
Dr. Frederic Oladeinde
Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation
