There are multiple sections on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos that are riddled with potholes and constitute threats to motorists.

TheCable observed that the affected parts have deteriorated over the past few months.

A commuter who spoke with TheCable complained about the dangers on the road with the bad portions.

The citizen who did not give his name said “road users may be getting robbed while cars are slowing down due to the bad spots to avoid their cars being damaged”.

He added that a friend who was not aware of the bad spots ran into one a few days ago and was lucky not to crash the vehicle.

“But his tyre went bad and the front legs of his car got affected,” he said.

In 2019, the ministry of works named the bridge as the busiest road in the country with a daily average of 117,000 vehicular traffic.

The popular bridge has also been the hotbed of accidents, as many lives and properties have been lost on the road. Ayodele Fayose, former governor of Ekiti state, had been involved in an accident on the bridge.

Four people died in a car accident in July 2022, a month after twenty-two people narrowly escaped death on the road.
