The Commissioner for Transportation in Lagos State, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, announced on Saturday that rehabilitation work to repair identified failed/peeled asphaltic sections on the Third Mainland Bridge will take place on Sunday from 9am to 4pm.
In a statement, Oladeinde explained that traffic will be diverted from one lane to another at the identified failed sections of the bridge. The repair work is necessary to solve tailbacks on the bridge during peak periods caused by the failed sections.
Oladeinde said: “About the notification received for the readiness of the Lagos State Public Works Corporation to repair the identified failed/peeled asphaltic sections of the Third Mainland Bridge, the Lagos State Government has announced a traffic diversion plan for the rehabilitation process, which is between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm tomorrow, Sunday, 2nd April 2023,”
“Traffic will be diverted from one lane to another on the Bridge at the identified failed asphaltic sections.”
Oladeinde assured Lagosians that the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) will be present to direct traffic and minimize inconvenience. The Commissioner urged motorists to exercise patience, as the measures taken are aimed at providing quality and safe road infrastructure for all.
“This was done to alleviate tailbacks along the bridge during peak periods caused by the failed sections.”
