3rd Mainland Bridge of Lagos
Nigeria’s 3rd Mainland Bridge is undoubtedly the longest bridge in West Africa, stretching 10.5 kilometers. Officially named the Ibrahim Babangida Bridge and proudly opened for vehicular traffic in 1990, this bridge is said to connect Lagos State and Lagos Island to the mainland. Just recently, the Federal Executive Council of Nigeria approved a contract for a full assessment of the 26-year-old bridge, following reports of excessive vibrations during traffic loads.
