Nigeria: 3rd Mainland Bridge re-opens a week ahead of the scheduled delivery date

Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos
The 3rd Mainland Bridge will be re-opened, a week ahead of the scheduled delivery date of November 6, 2012, according to Punch magazine. The bridge was partly closed on July 7 to enable the contractor carry out repair works. The reopening of the bridge will come as a relief to motorists and commuters who have been connecting the mainland through Western Avenue and other alternative routes.

The Special Adviser to the Minister of Works on Media, Mr. Tony Ikpasaja, confirmed the reopening of the bridge in a telephone conversation on Monday.
According to him, the Minister of Works, Mr. Mike Onolememen, will open the rehabilitated bridge to motorists at a ceremony that will also have in attendance Federal and Lagos State government officials and other stakeholders.
An opening ceremony for rehabilitating a bridge.? Lagosians and myself would like the Ministry of works to use the money to be wasted on the ceremony to fix the famous death traps in Nigeria: Benin-Ore expressway, Oshodi Apapa expressway, Lagos-Ibadan expressways and Abuja-Lokoja expressway.
