FG reopens Third Mainland Bridge
The Federal Controller of Works Lagos, Mr Olukayode Popoola, announced that the total shutdown of the Third Mainland Bridge would be lifted on Sunday, 24 hours ahead of schedule.
Popoola told the Journalist on Sunday in Lagos that the total shutdown had to be lifted because the contractor was able to fast-track the delicate task they needed to execute.
He said that the initially scheduled 72 hours timeframe was achieved within 48 hours, hence the reopening to traffic 24 hours ahead of schedule.
“We have completed the casting of the three number expansion joints on Third Mainland bridge. Therefore, the bridge shall be opened at 12:00 midnight Sunday 27th December, and no longer Monday 28th December. That is 48 hours and no more 72 hours,” Popoola said.
