Third Mainland bridge for repair Jan 9. The Federal Ministry of Works has declared that the Iyana-Oworonsoki end of the Third Mainland Bridge will undergo urgent repairs.

The closure of this section is scheduled on January 9, 2024.

Olukorede Keisha, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, said this in a statement on Thursday.

In a statement, she stated, “The Federal Government, through the Federal Ministry of Works, wishes to inform the motoring public that the emergency repairs of Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos will continue with the closure of Iyana Oworonshoki- Adeniji Adele bound for the effective repairs of the entire section of the bridge.”

Consequent to the above, motorists were advised to use alternative routes, like the Ojota – Ikorodu road- Funsho Williams Avenue – Eko Bridge-Apogbon-CMS- Ojota- Ikorodu Road- Jibowu – Yaba- Oyingbo-Iddo- Carter Bridge- CMS, and the Gbagada- Anthony- Ikorodu Road- Funsho Williams – Eko bridge- Apogbon – CMS.

Motorists were also encouraged to cooperate with traffic control personnel who were deployed to regulate traffic and guarantee smooth movements to minimize inconvenience throughout the repair time.

While thanking the general public for their past cooperation and understanding, Keisha asserted that more was expected this time around.

The Federal Controller of Works had previously announced in October 2023 that plans for a major overhaul of the asphalt layers of the Third Mainland Bridge were in place.

She described the bridge as a lifeline for Lagos commuters.

“So we were saying let us do a complete overhaul of the asphalt overlay,” Keisha explained. Some of them were long overdue because we hadn’t done them in the previous 30 years. We’ve only been addressing the failures that have surfaced.”

According to her, the asphalt layer on both sides will be completely overhauled and replaced with new ones that will survive for the next ten years.

She went on to say, “The Federal government has awarded that contract already, and preparatory works are pending when the contractor moves to the site because there are some elements of repairs that need to be imported.”
