The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has advised road users to avoid the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway due to traffic emanating from an accident on the axis.
Bisi Kazeem, Assistant Corps Marshal, Corps Public Education Officer, in a travel advice issued Sunday afternoon, said a “Road Traffic Crash (RTC) involving a loaded Tanker occurred in the early hours of today under the Ibafo pedestrian bridge on the outward Lagos section of the expressways.”
According to him, FRSC and other agencies have been on top of the situation since the occurrence of the crash.
“The contents of the fallen Tanker have been successfully trans-loaded into another truck and men of the Ogun State Fire Service have proceeded to refill their water tank.
“Unfortunately, some inpatient drivers who chose to drive against the flow of traffic from all available exit points have done so, thereby causing traffic jams not only for the outward Lagos section where the RTC occurred alone but also, the inward Lagos section as well,” he said.
He, therefore, advised all road users going into and out of Lagos to explore alternative routes, such as Ikorodu through Sagamu and Ijebu-Ode, and Epe for Lagos-bound vehicles.
“Some may choose Abeokuta through Sagamu Interchange as well. And vice versa for Ibadan-bound vehicles,” he noted.
