Following maintenance and periodic rehabilitation works on the strategic road infrastructure, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, Honourable Minister for Works and Housing has said that the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State will be fully reopened Saturday, February 27, 2021.

The Minister disclosed this development Saturday via his verified Twitter account.

It is recalled that the Federal Government had partially shut the Third Mainland Bridge July 24, 2020, for another round of rehabilitation.

The series of repairs, originally slated to last six months, was however, extended from January to February 2021 because of the last nationwide #EndSARS protests in Nigeria.

The construction was initially divided into two phases of three months on each carriageway, starting with the Oworonsoki-bound carriageway whose completion dragged to four months.

Traffic was partially diverted on a stretch of 3.5km where construction was ongoing between Adeniji Adele Ramp and Ebute Meta, while different time belts were allotted for traffic diversions on the bridge.
