The federal government has shut the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos to enable it carry out urgent repairs.
The closure was carried out at midnight on Christmas Day and will remain so until tomorrow.
A 48-hour partial closure of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway will also commence tomorrow to enable the completion of a flyover bridge.
The Third Mainland Bridge has been undergoing repairs since July 24, necessitating partial closure, but the current 72 hour closure is total. (Nation)
