The Federal Controller of Works, Lagos, Joshua Popoola, who disclosed this in a statement, said the total closure of the bridge would start on Friday midnight.

He added that repair works on the bridge had reached a critical stage.

The statement read: “The first total closure of the section of the bridge between Adekunle and Adeniji Adele will be from midnight of Friday, 9th October 2020 to midnight of Sunday, 11th October 2020 to allow the contractor to complete the first stage of casting works.

“The contractor, Messrs Borini Prono & Co. (Nig.) Limited is nearing completion of works on the closed section of Third Mainland Bridge and requires the total closure of both bounds of the bridge between Adeniji Adele and Adekunle. In addition to the closed bound of the bridge, the other bound from Adekunle to Adeniji Adele will also be closed to complete work.

“The total closure of this section of the bridge is to ensure that there is no vibration on the bridge during the casting in-place of the newly installed expansion joints. This is to allow for the setting of the special concrete, which allows the concrete to achieve its required compressive strength.

“Due to the number of expansion joints to be cast on the closed section of the bridge and the traffic situation in Lagos State, especially during the weekdays; the casting of the expansion joints will be in two stages to ensure that the total closure is only at the weekends when there is less traffic plying the route.”

The controller revealed that the period for the second total closure of the section between Adekunle and Adeniji Adele would be communicated at a later date.

“The section of the bridge between Adekunle and Iyana–Oworo will still remain open, and traffic can move from Ebute-Metta/ Adekunle to Iyana–Oworo, and vice–versa,” he added.

The bridge was partially shut for rehabilitation works on July 24.
