Maintain speed limit on renovated 3rd Mainland Bridge — LASTMA 

Ahead of the reopening of the newly renovated Third Mainland Bridge on April 4, 2024, the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority has warned motorists to maintain speed limits while driving on the long stretch of the bridge linking Mainland and other parts of the State. 

The General Manager of the Agency, Olalekan Bakare-Oki, gave the warning on Wednesday while addressing Officers of the Agency whose purview falls within the Third Mainland Bridge operational areas.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Director, Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department, LASTMA, Adebayo Taofiq.

According to the statement, Bakare-Oki observed: “The comprehensively repaired bridge is scintillating and fascinating to drive on without any impediments as this may be too tempting and risky not to observe speed limit thereby resulting in untoward consequences for motorists.”

He stated further that, “The government has installed state-of-the-art facilities that will aid motorists in navigating the entire bridge to their various destinations within a reasonable travel  time”

The General Manager urges motorists to obey every traffic signs and other installed traffic related electronic devices where necessary and keep to the approved speed limit.
