The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has issued a motorist advisory.
This occurred as a result of a fallen flyover bridge on the Enugu-Port Harcourt Dual Carriageway.
Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Public Relations Officer (CPEO), stated this in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja.
The fallen bridge, according to Kazeem, was near the new Artisan Market on the Port Harcourt-Enugu dual highway in Enugu State.
He stated that the bridge, which was alleged to have collapsed on September 25 at 12.30 p.m., had disrupted vehicular traffic on that route.
Motorists traveling from Port Harcourt/Aba to Abakiliki should go through Bricks at the new Kenyatta Market (Army Check Point)-Okpara Square, according to him.
“This will take them to the New Haven junction via the Otigba Roundabout, through the Ogui Roundabout-Abakpa junction (82 Division), and on to Abakiliki.”
“However, motorists traveling from Abuja/Abakiliki to Aba/Port Harcourt are advised to take the Abakpa Junction (82 Division)-New Haven junction via Otigba Roundabout.”
“This would be through Ogui Roundabout to Okpara Square and proceed to Enugu/Port harcourt dual carriageway, new Kenyatta Market (Army Check Point) and continue to Aba/PH,” he stated.
According to Kazeem, the advise was sent to ensure that cars were not caught in needless jams.
He cited FRSC Corps Marshal Dauda Biu as advising drivers of all vehicle types utilizing that route to use the aforementioned alternative roads and follow all road traffic rules and regulations for safe arrival. (NAN)
