FG reopens Third Mainland Bridge, LASTMA warns against speeding

The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has issued a cautionary advisory to motorists, urging them to adhere to speed limits while traversing the extensive stretch of the recently refurbished Third Mainland Bridge. This directive was communicated through a statement released by the agency’s spokesperson, Adebayo Toafiq, on Wednesday.

Toafiq emphasized the importance of motorists paying heed to all traffic signs and utilizing the technological equipment integrated into the traffic management system. The statement coincides with the Lagos State Government’s announcement on March 30 regarding the scheduled reopening of the Third Mainland Bridge on Thursday, April 4, 2024, as conveyed by the Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi, via his official communication platform.

In preparation for the resumption of full operations on the bridge, LASTMA is set to deploy personnel, patrol cars, and recovery vehicles to ensure the safety of drivers and facilitate prompt rescue operations in case of emergencies. Toafiq reiterated the need for motorists to exercise caution, plan their journeys in advance to avoid unnecessary speeding, and adhere to prescribed speed limits on both the Third Mainland Bridge and other connecting roads across the state.

This proactive measure aims to enhance road safety and mitigate potential risks associated with high-speed driving, underscoring LASTMA’s commitment to safeguarding the well-being of commuters traversing critical transportation routes within Lagos State.
