The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Wednesday said an early morning accident involving two articulated trucks at the Kara Bridge end of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway caused a total shutdown of traffic.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Federal Government on Tuesday resumed traffic diversion on the Kara Bridge section of the highway to continue reconstruction of the ever-busy corridor.

Explaining the cause of the gridlock being experienced on the highway by motorists and commuters a day after traffic diversion started, Mr Samuel Obayemi, the FRSC Zonal Commanding Officer, Zone RS2, comprising Lagos and Ogun, attributed the crash to impatience.

Obayemi, who frowned at the recklessness of some road users, urged motorists to be cautious of the diversion and exercise patience.

“JBN (Julius Berger Nigeria Plc) has been contacted and they are on the ground to remove the barriers that will aid the easy entrance of a tow-truck.

“FRSC, Nigeria Police, LASTMA (Lagos State Traffic Management Authority), TRACE (Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps) are on the ground managing the traffic.”

Obayemi said the recovery operations were ongoing to free the traffic and return normalcy to the corridor.
