The Federal Ministry of Work has announced that it will close the Third Mainland Bridge to all traffic for 24 hours beginning from today, Wednesday, February 28 to 12 noon on Thursday, February 29.

This, according to the ministry, is to allow the contractor working on the rehabilitation of the bridge to execute a major aspect of their repair works on the bridge.

The closure by the Federal Ministry of Works was announced in a statement by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi.

The commissioner advised all road users to use alternative routes already provided during this period.

Osiyemi assured road users that the traffic management officials would be on ground to manage traffic and minimise inconveniences.

Repair works have been ongoing on the bridge since January with partial closures for in and outbound traffics.
