The Ministry of Transportation of the Lagos State Government has said the repair works on Third Mainland Bridge are progressing as planned.

The ministry said this on Friday while inspecting all alternative routes provided for commuters to access the bridge.

The inspection team led by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, and other ministry officials toured Ikorodu Road, Jibowu, Yaba, Oyingbo, Iddo, and Carter (Idumota) Bridge, amongst others.

Speaking at the end of the inspection, Oladeinde said, “The work is about six months; we have done two months. We are on schedule. Next month, we will finish the first part and move on to the next part. So, we are on course to reopen on the 24th of January 2021.

“The first one started on the 24th of July and by the 24th of October, we should finish that section where they are working on and they should move to the next section. That would be another three months.”
