The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has asked motorists travelling from or to the south-west through the Lokoja-Kabba federal highway to take alternative routes, because of the gully present in the section of the highway between Zariagi and Obajana cement factory.
This was disclosed in a statement by the FRSC’s spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem on Tuesday, 31st August, 2021.
According to Kazeem, commuters were asked to use Lokoja-Okene-Kabba, or Lokoja-Okene-Ogorimangogo roads as alternative routes to or fro south-west, because the gully in the section of the highway has led to an obstruction of free flow of traffic and concerned authorities are already making efforts to repair it.
“This development has led to an obstruction of free flow of traffic . As all the concerned authorities are making frantic efforts to carry out emergency repairs to restore normal flow of traffic, the emergency work may take some hours to complete,
“In view of the foregoing, motorists, travelers, and the general public are hereby advised to use Lokoja-Okene-Kabba, or Lokoja-Okene-Ogorimangogo as alternative routes to or fro Southwest.
“The Federal Road Safety Corps solicits maximum cooperation of the motoring public on this development. The Corps will also continue to update the public periodically on further developments on the ameliorative work going on at the failed portion of the road.” the statement read.
