Enugu Collapsed Bridge: FRSC issues traffic advisory to motorists



The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has issued an advisory to motorists and diverted traffic along Enugu–Port Harcourt Dual Carriage Expressway after a collapsed flyover fridge.

The Corps Public Relations Officer (CPEO) Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) Bisi Kazeem, said this in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

Kazeem said the collapsed bridge was at new Artisan Market on the Port Harcourt-Enugu dual carriage way in Enugu State.

He said the bridge, which was said to have collapsed on Sept. 25 at 12.30 p.m. had affected vehicular movement on that route.

According to him, motorists coming from Port Harcourt/Aba to Abakiliki are advised to pass through Bricks at new Kenyatta Market (Army Check Point)-Okpara Square.

“This will lead them to New Haven junction by Otigba Roundabout, through Ogui Roundabout-Abakpa junction (82 Division) and proceed to Abakiliki.

“While on the other hand, motorists from Abuja/Abakiliki going to Aba/Portharcourt are advised to take Abakpa Junction (82 Division)-New Haven junction by Otigba Roundabout.

“This would be through Ogui Roundabout to Okpara Square and proceed to Enugu/Portharcourt dual carriage way, new Kenyatta Market (Army Check Point) and continue to Aba/PH,” he said.

Kazeem said the advisory became necessary to ensure that motorists were not caught up in avoidable gridlock.

He quoted the FRSC Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, as admonishing drivers of all categories of vehicles using that route to adhere to the aforementioned alternative roads and maintain all road traffic rules and regulations for safe arrival.(NAN)
