The Federal Ministry of Works and Housing has debunked claims that the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State has suffered structural defects, YabaCity reports.
It was gathered that rumours have been flying on social media that the Third Mainland Bridge had opened up and shaking, making it unsafe for motorists.
Reacting to this rumour, the spokesperson of the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Boade Akinola in a released statement said commuters should ignore the rumours stating that the bridge is safe for mobility.
“The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Engineer Olukayode Popoola, has debunked insinuations making the rounds in the social media that the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos has “opened up” and “shaking” and, therefore, unsafe to traffic saying the claim was both false and unfounded.
Giving an on-the-spot report on the Bridge, the Controller, who said he just drove along the Bridge without noticing any opening or experiencing any shaking as contained in the social media report, advised members of the public, especially commuters, to ignore the insinuations as the Bridge, which is receiving regular attention along with others across the country, is safe for use.”
