Mr. Osiyemi maintained that the reopening reaffirms the government’s commitment to infrastructure upkeep and public safety, and comes over one month after the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Works, announced that it would be closing two ramps of the bridge for repairs.

The Third Mainland Bridge, which was built in 1990, is Africa’s second-longest bridge, stretching nearly 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) to link Lagos Island, the business heart of the city, with the mainland where most people live.
