The Lagos State Government on Saturday announced that the rehabilitated Third Mainland Bridge will be reopened for road users on April 4, 2024.

The development was made known by the Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi, in a statement made available to Theliberationnews.

He said, “Dear Lagos residents, We’re pleased to share that the Third Mainland Bridge will resume full operations on April 4, 2024, following extensive repairs.

“We sincerely thank you for your patience and cooperation, and we look forward to even smoother travels ahead.”

Recall that the National Assembly advised the Minister of works, Dave Umahi, to call on the Presidency to declare a state of emergency on critical infrastructures in Lagos State.

The infrastructure include the Third Mainland Bridge.

Meanwhile, the lawmakers gave this advice after inspecting the bottom parts of the Third Mainland Bridge, Carter Bridge, among others in Lagos State.

According to them, the bottom parts of these infrastructure are decaying and need immediate repair. They said repair will prevent further damages that would incur more spending on reconstructing the bridges
