First bridge, before Ojota, from Maryland, Ikorodu expressway, is noted for mass movement of people crossing the ever-busy highway in the morning and in the evening because of the high population density of the area, which includes Ojota, Ogudu, Olusosun, oregun among others.
The daily mass movement on the old bridge prompted additional bridge to address the excessive delay that was being experienced by pedestrians using the only available bridge in 2016.
Ever since the additional bridge no further delays on the pedestrian bridges in the area.
However, the old pedestrian bridge is fast deteriorating. The government should therefore pay attention to the looming danger.
A resident who passes the area often, Mojeed Olawale Sulaimon said since prevention is always better than cure, the government should do something about the bridge.
“Mr Gov, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, This is the old pedestrian bridge at Ojota. The bridge is fast deteriorating and its materials are fast creeping away. Kindly direct relevant authorities to attend to it immediately.”
Another resident, Ibikun Ayoola said,” Government must pay high attention to “wear and tear” to prevent infrastructural decay and calamity.”
