Lagos to close 3rd Mainland Bridge for two consecutive Sundays


The Lagos State Government and the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing have announced palliative works on the 3rd Mainland Bridge, one of Lagos’s busiest and most important transportation links. The repairs will take place on two consecutive Sundays, September 17th and 24th, from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM each day.

The maintenance project will focus on the most critical sections of the bridge, specifically the portion from Iyana Oworonshoki towards Adeniji Adele/Lagos Island. This will help to minimize disruption to traffic flow.

To accommodate motorists during the repairs, the government has established alternative routes:

Motorists traveling from the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway or the Alapere/Ogudu area heading towards Lagos Island will be diverted to the Gbagada-Oshodi Expressway. From there, they can connect to Ikorodu Road/Funsho Williams Avenue, providing access to Eko Bridge and Lagos Island.

Motorists originating from the Lagos Mainland and using Herbert Macaulay Road (Adekunle axis) to reach Lagos Island via the 3rd Mainland Bridge will be rerouted towards Muritala Mohammed Way. This route will guide them to Carter Bridge, facilitating their journey to Lagos Island.

The LASG advises commuters to be patient and adhere to safety precautions during the palliative works. The government says the move is aimed at enhancing the safety and quality of the 3rd Mainland Bridge, ensuring the continued smooth flow of traffic for all residents and visitors.
