Third Mainland Bridge To Be Closed For Partial Repairs From Friday.

The federal government has announced that a part of the Third Mainland Bridge will be closed from midnight on Friday July 24,2020 for scheduled rehabilitation work...


Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, announced this on Tuesday while briefing Journalists in Abuja.
He confirmed that the rehabilitation work will be carried out on 3.5km of the 11.8km of the bridge.

The rehabilitation became imperative due to failing and damaged portions, admitting that the government cannot afford to rebuild the bridge if allowed to collapse.

The replacement of damaged bars, hydro-demolition of all non-firm parts and lifting of two of the bridge spans, will take a large portion of the work, which is expected to run until January 2021

Others are the anti-rust treatment of exposed bars, replacement of 14 damaged expansion joints and other auxiliary works to make the bridge safer for commuters.
