Announcement of the Third Mainland Bridge closure order by the Federal Controller of Work for Lagos State, Olukayode Popoola, just to cast concrete on the expansion joints.
The shut down will take effect from midnight on Sunday to midnight on Tuesday, Popoola told NAN on Tuesday.
The construction works had reached the stage for casting concrete on additional three expansion, according to him.
Popoola explained last week that, “On the Island-bound lane where we are working now, the contractor is ready to cast another three expansion joints this weekend, but because of the festive period we have a lot of vehicles on the road.
So, we were advised to stop it until next week, maybe during the public holiday where we will do the total closure.
He added that, the work on the surface of the bridge was over 70 per cent done, but the entire project was 22 per cent completed.
