Motorists Make Illegal U-Turn On Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway


Unless something urgent is done, a portion of the median where some motorists make  illegal U-turn around Adura bus stop along Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, may pose a  danger to unsuspecting motorists and other road users.

Lagos Bulletin learnt that the median was removed sometimes in September this year  following heavy traffic occasioned by flood in the area.

It was also learnt that the illegal U-turn has led to the death of  many people as  motorists, especially  commuter vehicle drivers are always impatient  when making  the illegal U-turn in the said place in order to avoid being arrested by law  enforcement agents.

Mr. Adebakin Koyejo, in a chat with Lagos Bulletin, urged the Federal Road  Maintainance Agency  (FERMA) and the Ministry of Works, Lagos State, to save the  residents of the area and other motorists from being killed or maimed by blocking  the illegal U-turn to reduce accident cases in the area.

Mr. Gbenga Balogun, another resident of the area also called on the Lagos State  government to find lasting solution to the problem before it caused more havock to  the residents of the area.

It was gathered that a truck crushed a school van while trying to make a U-turn at  the spot recently.
