Failed portions dot federal highways as motorists lament collateral damages

Checks have shown that across all the federal highways, there is more than one embarrassing failed portion that always serves as a nightmare for road users.

In many cases these spots are used both by uniformed law enforcement agencies as a stoppage for motorists during checks and also criminals for the same purpose.

Currently, there had been a particular failed portion that has become a growing Ox-bow Lake on the Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway.

The spot is immediately after Oshodi under bridge on the way to Cappa bus stop has been in this state of disrepair for months.

Fact checks showed that the failed portion and an illegal opening of the road divider where cars and yellow buses turn for a fee are responsible for the daily push back of traffic flow to as far as PWD Bus Stop.

Whereas officials of the Lagos Task Force stationed in the area usually appear helpless, the people groan day-in-day out in this needless traffic.
