It also said that the Third Mainland Bridge would be opened to vehicular movement by 12 midnight Sunday, January 31.
Dr Frederic Oladeinde, the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, disclosed in a statement on Sunday in Lagos.
Recall that the State government announced on January 28 that the bridge would be closed during the weekend to enable completion of repair works on the double-sized expansion.
Oladeinde explained that the bridge would, however, be opened ahead of the earlier projected Tuesday, February 2.
He noted that the earlier movement arrangements of 12 am for Lagos Island bound motorists and 12noon for Mainland bound motorist subsist.
Oladehinde expressed gratitude to Lagos residents, especially those affected by the closure, for their understanding.
The commissioner assured that the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led administration would continue to drive infrastructural growth in the state.
Oladehinde said, “LASG hereby appeals to residents to cooperate with the state government as all other ongoing rehabilitation projects would come to an end in a very short while.
“The benefits, including safety, are for all and sundry.”
