Federal Government plans clampdown on Lagos illegal sand miners as it installs CCTV

Written by on April 30, 2024

The Minister of Works, David Umahi, has said that closed-circuit television and solar lights would be installed on the Third Mainland Bridge by June to check the activities of illegal miners in the infrastructure.

Umahi said this after a routine inspection of the under-deck project at Iddo Bridge, Carter Bridge, and the Third Mainland bridges in Lagos.

He identified Berger as the contractor doing the Iddo Bridge, Carter Bridge, and Third Mainland Bridge, as he acknowledged that the spate of the progress has been commendable as there is still more to be done against the incoming lagoon tide in June.

The minister said that the Federal Government had taken proactive measures to address the condition of the piles supporting the Third Mainland Bridge, adding that erosion and illegal mining had damaged the piles, and a consultant would be contacted on the repairs.
