3rd Mainland Bridge re-opened

The longest bridge in Nigeria, Lagos's Third Mainland Bridge, has been re-opened to traffic. It was declared yesterday by the Minister of Works, Mike Onolehmenmen.

"Repair was not only completed 10 days ahead of delivery time, it was also completed at the awarded contract sum, devoid of variation," Onolehmenmen said, 

"I have the honour and privilege to declare the repair works on the Third Mainland Bridge completed. The bridge is hereby re-opened to traffic."

Praising the contractor who completed the bridge ahead of schedule, the Minister said, "The 3rd Mainland Bridge is not the only comprehensive bridge repair in Nigeria. Borini Prono completed repairs of Jebba bridge before coming to Lagos.
