Third Mainland Bridge Will Be Closed On Friday Midnight – FG
Federal Government has said the Third Mainland Bridge will be closed on Friday midnight and will not be reopened until January 2021.
Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who confirmed this at a briefing in Abuja on Tuesday, called on motorists in Lagos to be patient with the repairs.
He said that the Third Mainland bridge, which links the Lagos Island with the Lagos Mainland, is among the bridges designated for maintenance after a comprehensive assessment of 37 bridges across the country.
He added that it was better to bear six months of work and closure than to allow the bridge to collapse, a development that would take years to fix.
