The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, Adedamola Kuti, has approved the maintenance work on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State.
Other damaged bridges across the state are currently also undergoing maintenance and rehabilitation.
Kuti said the Ministry of Works would hold a meeting with stakeholders on Wednesday to discuss how to manage traffic during the period of repairs.
He did not specify the exact date the bridge would be closed to traffic or how long the repairs would last.
“The Federal Executive Council has approved the maintenance work on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State.
“The project has taken off already and in carrying out the work, we may at certain times be shutting down the bridge for maintenance.
“At the moment we may begin with tests on the bridge, so, we may shut it by 12 midnight on Thursday and carry out tests and some repairs and open it to traffic by midnight on Sunday,” Kuti said.
