The Lagos State Government has announced the rescheduling of the planned palliative works on the failed sections of the Third Mainland Bridge.
The repairs were slated to take place for two consecutive Sundays: September 17 and 24 respectively, between 7 am to 7 pm on both days.
But in a statement signed and released by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi on Saturday, September 16, the postponement was due to a heavy rainfall experienced in all parts of the state today.
Osiyemi had explained that the downpour had affected the proceedings of the planned palliative works on the asphalt walkway of the bridge by the Lagos State Public Works Corporation.
This news is coming after the Lagos State Government had on Friday, September 15, announced fir palliative works to be done on its Public Works Corporation, the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing on failed sections of the always busy Third Mainland Bridge.
The Transport Commissioner has meanwhile, assured residents of the state that a later date which will be dependent on the weather conditions would be appropriately communicated. Motorists on the other hand had been urged to continue to access the bridge while observing safety measures.
