According to the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Olukayode Popoola, consultations are currently ongoing for another phase of repair works to begin on the 11.8 km bridge.

“We want to do maintenance work on Third Mainland Bridge very soon. Most likely on the 24th. We may close it from 24th of July.

“We are still working out the modalities and when we perfect the traffic management plan we will move to site.

“Everything being expected for the repairs of the bridge arrived (in) the country, that is why we want to start the repairs now,’’ He said.
