FG to begin repairs on Falomo Bridge after Third Mainland reopens

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said arrangements have been made to begin repairs on Falomo Bridge after the Third Mainland Bridge is reopened.

Fashola made this known while he spoke as a guest on Classic FM on Sunday, he noted that the Third Mainland Bridge would be fully open to vehicular traffic before February ending.

Listing the several bridges the ministry had worked on, the minister stressed that Falomo Bridge expansion joints need work.

He said, “The pillars, the piles, repair and underwater repair of the Third Mainland Bridge should not keep us beyond the end of February.

“Let me also say we have done work on Ojuelegba Bridge; we have done work on Independent Bridge. We have also done some work on the Falomo Bridge and we plan to close the Falomo Bridge after the Third Mainland Bridge.

“We have to work on Falomo because the expansion joints also need to be replaced. The deck work has been done but we will notify the public in details when it will happen. We are also working on the Eko Bridge and right under it.”
