Former President Goodluck Jonathan awarded the project to Italian firm, Borini Prono & Company Nigeria Limited, following signs of some misalignments on the bridge caused by ecological problems, erosion and sand filling.

The Lagos outer ring road, which is the beginning of the Third Mainland Bridge from the outer Marina, links the Mainland to Victoria Island and Ikoyi.According to him, government plans to start with about N70 billion-N100 billion from the most critical bridges, to prevent their collapse and then move to the less critical ones.
