The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has sprung into action following the recent collapse of a flyover bridge in Enugu.

This development has prompted a crucial traffic advisory for motorists, necessitating the rerouting of traffic along the Enugu–Port Harcourt Dual Carriage Expressway.

The bridge, situated at the New Artisan Market on the Port Harcourt-Enugu dual carriageway in Enugu State, abruptly crumbled on September 25 at 12:30 p.m., leading to significant disruptions in the local traffic flow.

Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Public Relations Officer (CPEO), outlined alternative routes for drivers to ease the inconveniences caused by the bridge’s collapse.

Kazeem stressed the importance of obeying this advisory to prevent unnecessary traffic.

Kazeem stated, “Motorists traveling from Port Harcourt/Aba to Abakaliki are advised to use the route through Bricks at the new Kenyatta Market (Army Check Point)-Okpara Square. This route will guide them to New Haven junction via Otigba Roundabout, through Ogui Roundabout-Abakpa junction (82 Division), and onward to Abakaliki.”

For those traveling from Abuja/Abakaliki to Aba/Port-Harcourt, Kazeem recommended, “Follow the route via Abakpa Junction (82 Division)-New Haven junction through Otigba Roundabout, then proceed through Ogui Roundabout to Okpara Square, and then continue on the Enugu/Port Harcourt dual carriageway, passing through the new Kenyatta Market (Army Check Point) en route to Aba/PH.”

FRSC Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, urged all drivers using this route to adhere to the suggested alternative roads and comply with road traffic rules and regulations to ensure a safe journey.

Fortunately, no casualties were reported at the time of the incident, as artisans and residents were just beginning their daily business activities when the bridge collapsed.
