The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said that the Third Mainland Bridge will be fully reopened today after rehabilitation works.

The Federal Government had partially shut the Third Mainland Bridge on July 24, 2020 for another round of rehabilitation.

The series of repairs, expected to last six months, was extended from January to February because of the #EndSARS protests.

The construction was initially divided into two phases of three months on each carriageway, starting with the Oworonsoki-bound carriageway whose completion dragged to four months.

Traffic was partially diverted on a stretch of 3.5km where construction was on-going between Adeniji Adele Ramp and Ebute Meta, while different time belts were allotted for traffic diversions on the bridge.
