The Federal Government is ramping up security measures at the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos, one of Africa’s longest bridges, by installing closed-circuit television (CCTV) and solar lights as part of its restoration efforts.

The bridge, undergoing repairs for weeks, has caused traffic congestion for vehicles and other road users. Works Minister David Umahi, speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, disclosed that the project is 99% complete, with additional work focusing on enhancing security and safety measures.

Umahi emphasized the importance of the rehabilitation, particularly the deck, which has been a critical aspect of the restoration process. He highlighted the installation of CCTV cameras both on top of and under the bridge, aiming to deter criminal activities such as illegal mining and ensure the safety of the structure.

The minister also praised the efforts of President Bola Tinubu’s administration, expressing confidence in his re-election in 2027. He described Tinubu’s presidency as divine and emphasized the government’s commitment to restoring and improving the country.

Umahi concluded by stating, “We are taking back this country and giving it back to Nigerians, and that’s what Mr President has come to do, and we are just here to give him support.”

The Third Mainland Bridge is expected to reopen soon, with the added security measures in place to enhance safety and prevent illegal activities around the bridge.
