In an earlier scheduled closure for routine repairs of the Third Mainland Bridge, the Lagos State Government has said it is putting on hold announced postponement
The Lagos State Government has said it is putting on hold the earlier scheduled routine repairs of the Third Mainland Bridge.
It would be recalled that the state government on Friday, had announced closure of the bridge for repairs two consecutive Sundays, September 17 and 24, between 7 am to 7 pm on both days.
But in a statement by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi on Saturday, the postponement is “due to the heavy downpour experienced in all parts of the metropolis today.”
Osiyemi explained that the heavy downpour has affected the preliminaries of the planned palliative works on the asphalt pavement of the bridge by the Lagos State Public Works Corporation.
The repair will be jointly carried out by the Lagos Public Works Corporation and the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing on failed sections of the ever-busy Third Mainland Bridge.
Osiyemi, however, assured that another date will be communicated to the public.
