The Federal Road Safety Corps in Ogun State has on Wednesday morning advised commuters to seek alternative routes and avoid the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
Speaking on behalf of the Corps, the State’s Sector Commander, Clement Oladele said that there were breakdowns of multiple trucks along the expressway which caused gridlocks.
He said, “The most pronounced of the breakdowns occurred with an overloaded truck travelling on speed out of Lagos conveying a container but lost control around the Kara Bridge and crossed the road divider blocking traffic on both sections of the Expressway, impairing traffic into and out of Lagos around the Kara bridge.
“The situation has affected traffic and the gridlock has snarled from the Kara Bridge towards Ibafo near Mowe and same situation also affecting traffic outward Lagos.”
He assured that the Corps would be on the scene until normalcy is restored.
