November 11, 2016 – Traffic Gridlock As Julius Berger Nigeria Closes Part Of Lagos Ibadan Expressway
For the 3rd day, motorists and commuters on Lagos/Ibadan Expressway have been telling sad tales–of pain and anguish– as Julius Berger Nigeria Limited works on the ever-busy road.
On Wednesday, passengers and motorists spent several hours between Mowe/Ibafo to Berger bus stop in Lagos.
Two articulated trucks broke down on the Long Bridge. There were no emergency and traffic management agencies to remove the trucks. There was a gridlock for inbound and outbound vehicles.
Besides manhours lost in traffic, commuters face threats to lives from robbers, who lay in wait for broken down vehicles in the gridlock.
