Unless something urgent is done, a portion of the median where some motorists makeÂ illegal U-turn around Adura bus stop along Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, may pose aÂ danger to unsuspecting motorists and other road users.
Lagos Bulletin learnt that the median was removed sometimes in September this yearÂ following heavy traffic occasioned by flood in the area.
It was also learnt that the illegal U-turn has led to the death ofÂ many people asÂ motorists, especiallyÂ commuter vehicle drivers are always impatientÂ when makingÂ the illegal U-turn in the said place in order to avoid being arrested by lawÂ enforcement agents.
Mr. Adebakin Koyejo, in a chat with Lagos Bulletin, urged the Federal RoadÂ Maintainance AgencyÂ (FERMA) and the Ministry of Works, Lagos State, to save theÂ residents of the area and other motorists from being killed or maimed by blockingÂ the illegal U-turn to reduce accident cases in the area.
Mr. Gbenga Balogun, another resident of the area also called on the Lagos StateÂ government to find lasting solution to the problem before it caused more havock toÂ the residents of the area.
It was gathered that a truck crushed a school van while trying to make a U-turn atÂ the spot recently.
