3MB Closure: Lagos State Govt Releases Ten Alternative Routes From Mainland to Island & Their Status.
The Federal Ministry of Works under the leadership of former governor Babatunde Raji Fashola has announced its plan to shut down the Third Mainland Bridge for six months. It is to carry out some maintenance works on the 11.8 km long bridge.
The work is scheduled to commence on 24 July 2020, one side of the bridge will be closed down for three months, motorists have the opportunity to ply the other side and the second side will also be closed after the completion of the first one.
The last time a maintenance work was done on the bridge was in 2018 as the bridge was closed for about six weeks, this new maintenance work will be completed by January 2021.
Lagos State usually experiences serious traffic gridlock whenever the bridge is closed, this is due to the high volume of traffic that passes through the bridge daily.
The Lagos State Government under the leadership of Governor Babajide Sanwo Olu is ready to corporate with the federal government during this period by making life easier for Lagosians who ply the route daily.
The Government also revealed the status of the roads, rehabilitation work is currently ongoing on some while others have been completed.
See the alternative routes in the picture below.
The closure of the bridge start next week, kindly like and share this to others. Thanks
