As partial closure of Third Mainland Bridge begins, Lagos reassures on traffic

By Adeyinka Aderibigbe



The Lagos State Government has assured motorists of ease in movement for the next six months as it partially closed down the 3rd Mainland Bridge for repair works on worn out expansion joints on the structure of the bridge.

At a joint press conference by the Commissioners for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, and the Special Adviser to the Governor on Works and Infrastructure, Aramide Adeyoye, in Alausa, Oladeinde re-assured that the state government is fully prepared to cater to the mobility needs of residents and visitors of the state as it has deployed 650 LASTMA officials as well as 250 FRSC personnel to diversion points and alternative routes to manage the traffic flow for the duration of the rehabilitation.



The commissioner reaffirmed that alternative routes that would aid in decongesting the roads have been rehabilitated with the Lagos Bus Service Limited deploying more buses to designated routes with clearance to utilize the BRT corridors, while the Ilaje Jetty is in full operation to reduce travel time within the metropolis and to further minimize the inconveniences to be experienced due to the ongoing maintenance.

Omotoso regarded the anxiety among the populace over the closure as misplaced as according to him, the Lagos State Government is on top of the situation.

He implored Lagosians to comply with traffic rules, as the state will manage the traffic flow while the Federal Government will focus on repair works on the bridge.

Adeyoye revealed that the procurement process as stipulated by the World Bank for transparency, quality assurance checks and measures, purchase of sensitive and specific materials used in construction were major reasons for the lengthy duration of repair works. She disclosed further that the wear and tear of the section of the bridge underwater takes time to fix.

She reiterated that alternative routes had been rehabilitated and are still undergoing repair to meet the demands of the coming months, assuring that assiduous efforts are being made and palliative measures put in place to ensure ease in movement.
