The smallest possible length of a $q$-ary linear code of covering radius $R$ and codimension (redundancy) $r$ is called the length function and is denoted by $\ell_q(r,R)$. In this work, for $q$ \emph{an arbitrary prime power}, we obtain the following new constructive upper bounds on $\ell_q(3t+1,3)$: $\ell_q(r,3)\lessapprox \sqrt[3]{k}\cdot q^{(r-3)/3}\cdot\sqrt[3]{\ln q},~r=3t+1, ~t\ge1, ~ q\ge\lceil\mathcal{W}(k)\rceil, 18
