LAGOS – The Federal Government has announced that the Third mainland bridge would be closed from midnight on Friday to midnight on Monday, February 1.
In a statement, the Federal Controller of Works Lagos, Olukayode Popoola, said “Messers Boroni Prono is planning to cast three number expansion joints on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st. We are sorry for the inconveniences this may cause Lagosians.”
While the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, had also made more revelation on the ongoing construction on the Third mainland bridge.
He said “On the Third Mainland Bridge most of our work is almost done, we lost two weeks during the civil protest and our completion date earlier was towards the end of January, which has slipped.
“We are hoping that by 15th of February we should be done and the bridge should be opened to the public.
“That is one of the reasons why I also came to see how far and when this bridge will be opened to the public because this is delaying our work on Falomo Bridge.
“We have done some work on Falomo Bridge, we are going to have to close Falomo Bridge as soon as this is done so that we can also replace the expansion joints there.”
