Danger Alert: Video Show Dancing Link On Third Mainland bridge
 
There appears to be a disaster waiting to happen on Nigeria' longest bridge the third Mainland bridge. The bridge which starts from Oworonshoki and ends at the Adeniji Adele Interchange on Lagos Island  is "Dancing" dangerously according a video shared by a twitter user @AriyorPemisire
 
Public health and  safety should be paramount in a country like Nigeria with a huge population , as such we call on the relevant authorities  especially the Federal Ministry of Works to immediately swing into action to prevent catastrophic loss of lives which has became a trademark of the bridge in recent times.

I think the video exaggerates the situation.

The links arent supposed to be fixed..

If they wanted them fixed they would have welded them shut..

You can also observe the coupling pattern..

Something about buckling and temperature expansion.

So you want our beloved government to have headache just because third mainland bridge is vibrating?

Instead of you to encourage Nigerians to work hard and buy helicopters so that the APC government can rest..

Be warned! grin

Watch as Ignorant folks gon flood everywhere.
Smh.


Expansion joints are components of long bridges designed to accommodate movement, shrinkage, and temperature variation expansion.


That bridge is fine!!!

Make una no panic.

Does he know anything about bridge construction? If not he shud let a professional give informed advice. However he did well to bring up the concern.

What you saw is designed to function like that. When bridges are built, there is room given for expansion of the bridge during hot weather that's what that coupling is for. It's called fishplate.

It closes when the bridge is hot, and opens when the bridge is cold. This is as a result of expansion and compression of the materials used in construction of the bridge which is basically steel and concretes

No cause for alarm. It's for expansion purposes. It's intentional. You can also find it in rail lines, Bridges, high rise buildings, large concrete casted compounds.

Linear expansivity.

Li= Lo [ 1 + alpha (Ti -To)]



Please let us all pardon the Op because he didn't do physics in his secondary school days.
