Third Mainland: Lagos to close Oworonshoki lane Saturday


The Oworonshoki bound lane of the Third Mainland Bridge will be closed totally to vehicular movement by midnight on Saturday, February 6 till 7 pm on Sunday, February 7 to remove the last expansion joint on the Oworonshoki bound lane.

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Transportation on Wednesday, the closure is vital to enable the contractor move its equipment to the Oworonshoki bound lane within the given period without any interruption.

The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, stated that the rehabilitation process was being done assiduously to ensure set deadlines were met.

Motorists from Ogudu, Alapere and Gbagada were advised to use Ikorodu Road, Jibowu and Yaba as alternative routes, while Iyana Oworosoki bound traffic from the Lagos Island, Iddo, Oyingbo, Adekunle and Yaba should use Herbert Macaulay Way, Jibowu and Ikorodu road as alternative routes.
