The state of the Lagos third mainland bridge is no news, as many
times people ply that bridge with their hearts in their stomachs,
because of the deplorable state of the bridge. Many calls have been made by Nigerians for the bridge to be repaired,
but prior to this time, only minor repair work has been done on it, but
with the increasing fear for lives and properties, we have just
received information that the bridge will be closed for repairs from
July 1 2012 to November 6 2012, this is to aid adequate repair work to
be carried out on it.
There is fear in the heart of Nigerians over the pain and hardship
this will cause as the Third mainland bridge is a major traffic route
for people going the Victoria Island, Ikoyi and many other parts of
Lagos state, but the government has decided that the citizens should
bear this slight pain at the expense of a bigger calamity if the bridge
collapses in the near future.
