The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority has warned motorists to exercise speed limits when using the extensive section of the newly repaired Third Mainland Bridge.

This was made known in a statement by Adebayo Toafiq, the agency’s spokesperson, on Wednesday.

He urged motorists to follow all traffic signs and installed technological equipment connected to traffic.

The Lagos State Government on March 30 announced the planned reopening of the Third Mainland Bridge on Thursday, April 4, 2024.

This was contained in a statement by Oluwaseun Osiyemi, the Commissioner for Transportation, on his X account on Saturday.

 

“Dear Lagos residents, We’re pleased to share that the Third Mainland Bridge will resume full operations on April 4, 2024, following extensive repairs,” the statement reads.

 

In late March, the National Assembly Joint Committee on Works inspected the repair work of the bridge and other Federal Government projects in Lagos.

He said, “The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority has warned motorists to maintain speed limits while driving on the long stretch of the newly renovated Third Mainland Bridge linking the Mainland and other parts of the state.

“Motorists must be conscious of time and plan their journey ahead to avoid unnecessary speeding while using the bridge and other link roads across the state.

“The agency would deploy more men and patrol and recovery vehicles to ensure the safety of motorists and timely rescue intervention on the bridge.”
