Get more connected to the real facts

There is heavy traffic on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Tuesday morning.

The traffic is on both lanes of the expressway as a trailer was seen to have crashed along Kara bridge, while a road repair is ongoing along OPIC of the other lane of the expressway.

The traffic, to the extent of our correspondent’s observation, was seen from Berger up to OPIC area en route Ibadan, while on the other lane, the traffic was seen from OPIC en route Berger.

It was a standstill experience for commuters as many vehicles were seen plying the untarred road off the expressway.

Meanwhile, plying the untarred route did not seem to be a total way out as our correspondent saw that there was also traffic on the road, which could not be disconnected from attempts by many commuters to use the route.

It was gathered that the trailer had crashed since Monday night, damaging a part of the concrete bridge railing.

The cause of the crash was yet to be ascertained but a team of the Federal Road Safety Corps was seen at the scene.

However, a passenger, who spoke to our correspondent, suggested it could have been caused by a brake failure.

He also bemoaned the development, saying that the road repair by the construction company ought to be carried out in the middle of the night rather than delaying people who had several businesses and works to attend to in the morning.
