The Federal Government, on Wednesday, approved N6.28bn for surface maintenance of the Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos State.
The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who briefed State House correspondents after this week’s Federal Executive Council meeting at the Presidential Villa said the 24-month repair will cover 11 kilometers including interchanges, ramps, and critical links.
He said the move aligns with Executive Order 11 signed by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in April 2022, which gave legal backing to the country’s national maintenance policy.
The announcement comes barely two weeks after the Lagos State Government said it would undertake rehabilitation works on the 32-year-old Bridge to repair failed and peeled asphaltic sections and substructure.
