“The second phase closure of the repair works is coming two weeks behind schedule as a result of delays occasioned by the recent mayhems around the Lagos metropolis.

“It is however essential to have it urgently done to prevent vibrations on the bridge during the casting-in-place of the newly installed expansion joints which in turn will allow the special concrete to achieve its required compressive strength.”
