The Lagos State Government has disclosed that rehabilitation work will commence on the Third Mainland Bridge on Sunday (2nd of April, 2023) to repair identified failed/peeled asphaltic sections.
The state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement on Saturday, announced traffic diversion plans for the rehabilitation process occurring between 9 am and 4 pm.
According to Oladeinde while highlighting the readiness of the Lagos State Public Works Corporation to carry out the project, explained that traffic would be diverted from one lane to another lane at the identified failed asphaltic sections on the bridge.
He added that this was expedient to solve tailbacks along the bridge at the peak periods as a result of the failed sections.
