Lagos state which is known for taking laws and enforcing it hard on citizens implemented another forceful law on commuters by mandating them not to cross the expressway but make use of the pedestrian bridge.
Anyone caught crossing Ketu road is being arrested by security officers readily available and made to pay a heavy fine. This action has made commuters stick to taking the pedestrian bridge instead but the bridge in question has become too old to carry all the people’s weights.
The weak state of the pedestrian bridge was noticed by InsideMainland since August 2016 and has since been reported to the authority in concern. No repairs have been made yet and no alternative route provided. The bridge presently shake and vibrate due to its constant and heavy use. Users of the bridge live in continuous fear daily because of its uneven condition.
Speaking to InsideMainland, a pedestrian confirmed that the bridge is damaged beyond repairs and could disintegrate anytime soon as part of the railings people use for cushion when tired is rust and might lose its grip anytime and the railings used in holding the advertising boards and directional signs meant for motorists and other road users is completely rickety and might fall off if pressured in any way.
We hereby call on the government to please help avert a looming disaster around Ketu on Ikorodu road, Lagos.
