He said with the collapse, journey of few minutes will change to long journey and waste of time and limited resources.
He urged the state government to as a matter of urgency fix the bridge.
“Yeah, it’s true. We met the bridge collapsed this morning due to heavy rainfall. The bridge has been in bad condition since. We hope the state government will fix it as soon as possible, because journey of few minutes will now be long distance with the usage of adjoining roads.”
Another resident, Mr Mayowa Adegoke accused the Seyi Makinde-led government of neglect of the zone.
