Finally, Third Mainland Bridge reopens fully



The Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos is now open to traffic, according to Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola.

In a tweet at 11.40am on Saturday, he said: “Third mainland bridge rehab completed. Fully opens to traffic at 12noon today. Thank you all for your patience. Drive safely.”

The bridge was initially shut in July 2020 for repairs that were scheduled to last for four months.

However, the work stretched beyond the schedule to February 2021.
