Repairs On Third Mainland Bridge Begins On July 27, To Last 27 Months by CANDYDADDY(f): 5:40pm On Jul 11
The Federal Controller of Works, Lagos, Mr. Adedamola Kuti, on Wednesday in Lagos said that the emergency rehabilitation/maintenance of the Third Mainland Bridge project would begin on July 27.

Kuti disclosed this at a stakeholders’ meeting at the Ministry of Works office in Lagos.

He said that the repair works on the bridge would be staggered over a period of 27 months and would be handled by Borini Prono Construction Company.



The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the meeting was convened by the ministry for stakeholders to brainstorm on effective traffic diversion and management to prevent gridlocks during the period.

Some of the stakeholders at the event include: NUPENG, National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Association of Maritime Truck Owners (AMATO), Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) and the police.

He said that the bridge would be totally shut to traffic on the first three days for the contractor to carry out various tests on it.

He said that subsequent closures would be on partial basis.

“A Dynamic Test on Bridge Expansion Joints on Third Mainland Bridge is to be carried out between Friday, July 27, 2018 and Sunday, July 29, 2018 and it has been done in such a way that it will have minimum impact on road users.

“Consequently, the Third Mainland Bridge will be closed to traffic by 12.00 midnight of Thursday 26th July, 2018 and be opened by 12.00 midnight Sunday 29th July, 2018.

“Alternative routes will be plied during this period and traffic control will be in place to direct and help traffic movement.

“We regret any inconvenience this might cause road users as this closure is inevitable,’’ he said.



He appealed for the patience of road users and promised that all alternative routes would be repaired to make them smooth for easy access.

Also, the Lagos State Sector Commander of the Federal Roads Safety Corps, (FRSC), Mr Hyginus Omeje, appealed to motorists to use mass transportation facilities during repair works on the Third Mainland Bridge.

Omeje told journalists that the vehicular occupancy ratio in Lagos was 1:1 which meant that there was an average of one driver per vehicle that plied the road hence, the usual heavy traffic.

He said that all the traffic regulatory and law enforcement agencies at the event were going to work in synergy to prevent gridlock.

“Instead of everybody coming out with their vehicles within this period, can we do the park-and-ride option which we have been advocating to really help us to ease off traffic in Lagos,’’ he said.

He also appealed to the media to increase its awareness campaign on the dangers of drivers of articulated vehicles parking on the roads and bridges.

They should change their attitudes toward indiscriminate parking of trucks on the roads and bridges, Omeje said.

make una day take una papa mates day play una hear. una never repair ordinary road na bridge una day repair. see lagos since 1970 na traffic day hold ppl stand still, up till today the traffic never cease. nobody just get head to know wetin to do.

since wen babangida build this bridge which other one don follow. no other major bridge project don ever surpass this bridge. nigeria has waterways instead of to develop the ferry and bring in modern and safe means of water transport dem day throway money for invisible bridges.
this repair go cos us billions of dollars. the money to repair this bridge can build another bridge.

goodluck say e day build invisible 2nd niger bridge instead e go dredge river niger. e just go there go mumu himself come down day form father of democracy. that moomu just waste the poor masses chance of getter fair governance. e for just hand over power to another person instead of contesting. now this old deaf won still go recontest when he don promise us say e no go contest again. old liars way no get respect for their ages.

una day repair third mainland bridge how do you deal with the traffic in lagos? when no water taxis around. see the kind ferry way we day use for nigeria. e worst pass vietnam boats. how much be ferry way all this big fat belly men go day form prestige for town and they cannot invest in water transport?

minister of transport, why cant the easterners and southerner and ilaje people get water transport to their states and villages? must they have to cross customs and thiefpolicemen on the dangerous roads?

there should be a straight water bus from lagos to the east and south.

no need to day tel us wetin una won do again. the news should be we have commissioned a new project. we want to we want to don tire us.
wicked heartless men.

All they need to do is hire tow trucks to get rid of the vehicles. The expense will be on owner when the come to collect truck and recieve ticket. If they dont want truck it can be auctioned off or sold for scrap. They still get ticket though. Refuse to pay ticket the can sit in jail.
