THE Federal Government may have indefinitely suspended the proposed repair work earlier scheduled to begin on the Third Mainland Bridge Sunday, thus putting the controversy with the Lagos State officials over the matter to an abrupt but temporary end.
Lagos Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Charles Nseobong Akpabio, Saturday disclosed in an interview with The Guardian that the postponement was intended to put more measures in place.
Akpabio said there would be an all-stakeholders' meeting later in the week to discuss a new take-off date.
But, when The Guardian contacted the Lagos State Commissioner for Transport, Mr. Kayode Opeifa, he simply said he would not comment on the matter.
Akpabio urged all motorists in the Lagos metropolis to go about their activities and wait for further information on the bridge repair.
The FRSC had explained that traffic information would be communicated from time to time via Radio, Television, Newspapers and social media network.
The repairs on the all-important Third Mainland Bridge was earlier scheduled to commence Sunday and to end on November 6, 2012.
