The current repair works on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos will be completed by the end of this month, (October, 2012) according to the company handling the rehabilitation, Borini Prono Nigeria Limited.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the repair works, which began in July, had been scheduled for completion on Nov. 6
However, Mr. Nastani Claudio, Borini Prono’s Manager, told visiting members of the House of Representatives Sub-Committee on Works yesterday that only three of the eight joints were left to be fixed.
“We are now working on the last three joints,” Claudio told the lawmakers who were in Lagos for an on-the-spot assessment of works on the bridge and other projects.
The manager said that if the bridge was properly maintained after the current repairs, it would be all right for another 25 years.
Dr. Rafiu Ibrahim, Ifelodun/Offa/Oyun Federal Constituency, Kwara, who led the team, told newsmen he was sure that the contractor would not disappoint the government.
