3rd Mainland bridge To Be Temporarily Shut For 4 Days – LASG
The Lagos State Government has said that the 3rd Mainland Bridge will be temporarily shut down for four days, starting from midnight of August 23 to midnight of August 26, 2018 for Investigative Maintenance Test to be carried out.
The State’s Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mr Ade Akinsanya said that the decision was taken after due consultation with the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing.
The four-day closure, according to Akinsanya, would enable the contractors assess the true state of the bridge after which works would commence by the end of the year or early 2019.
“The 3rd Mainland Bridge which was opened about 30 years ago by the then military government has had haphazard maintenance and repairs in the past which the present Federal Government is committed to correct by carrying out proper and continuous maintenance and repairs on it,”Akinsanya stated.
