Olukayode Popoola, the Federal controller of Works in Lagos has announced that the Federal Government is set to shut the Third Mainland Bridge for six months, from Friday, July 24 2020.
Mr Olukayode announced that the bridge would be shut down as a result of repairs to be carried out on it.
He further explained that the work will begin on the outward mainland section of the bridge, and the ministry is working with relevant agencies to perfect traffic during the period.
It was also reported that some parts of the bridge were worn out and this gave course for concerns by residents of the state.
Recall that in August 2018, the bridge was also shut down for 3 days, due to some repairs that were made.
The Third Mainland Bridge which was opened in 1990, is the longest of three bridges connecting Lagos Island to the mainland.
