FG SETS TO REOPEN THIRD MAINLAND BRIDGE

The Federal Government on Sunday said it would reopen the Third Mainland Bridge by midnight.


Recall that Eons Intelligence on December 22 reported that the Federal Government was going to shut down the Third Mainland Bridge for 72 hours.


This was announced in a statement by Olukayode Popoola, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State.


He said the total shutdown of the Third Mainland Bridge would be lifted at midnight 24 hours ahead of schedule.


Popoola told newsmen in Lagos that the total shutdown had to be lifted because the contractor was able to fast-track the delicate task they needed to execute.


He revealed that the initially scheduled 72 hours time-frame was achieved within 48 hours, hence the reopening to traffic 24 hours ahead of schedule.


“We have completed the casting of the three number expansion joints on Third Mainland bridge.

“Therefore, the bridge shall be opened at 12:00 midnight Sunday 27th December, and no longer Monday 28th December.


“That is 48 hours and no more 72 hours,” Popoola said.


The shutdown was to stop vibrations caused by the movement of vehicles for contractors to cast concrete on additional three expansion joints in the ongoing rehabilitation of the bridge.
