Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has called on all motorists plying the partially shut Third Mainland Bridge to be patient all through the period the repair work will last.
Sanwo-Olu made the appeal to commuters on Saturday, while on an inspection of the bridge and alternative routes rehabilitated by the State Government.
The Governor also toured various highways where junctions and roundabouts have been redesigned to diffuse traffic, including Allen Junction, Maryland Junction, and Lekki’s first and second roundabouts, among others.
Sanwo-Olu said the bridge’s repair was long overdue and could no longer be postponed as it would portend danger to the residents.
The Governor urged motorists to be patient and cooperate with traffic management personnel deployed on the routes, while assuring that the Government would ensure speedy work on the bridge.
