The Lagos State Government(LASG) has announced that the Third Mainland Bridge will be closed starting from Thursday, August 23 to Sunday, August 23, 2018.

A tweet by the Lagos state government reads:

“Third Mainland Bridge will be temporarily closed for four days starting from midnight of August 23 to midnight of August 26, 2018 in order to carry out Investigative Maintenance Test on the bridge”

The State government made the announcement  yesterday, August 19, saying the four-day closure will enable the contractors assess the true state of the bridge after which works would commence by the end of the year or early in 2019. It also said the decision to close the Bridge was taken after due consultation with the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing.

The LASG therefore, appealed for the support and understanding of all motorists and residents to minimize non-essential travel and movements during the four-day closure. Also, all traffic management agencies including LASTMA, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and the Police, among others, have been mandated to ensure smooth and uninterrupted flow of traffic on all the other alternative roads and traffic corridors across the metropolis during the closure.
