Ketu Residents Cry Out Over Dangerous Pedestrian Bridge That SHAKES As Thousands of Commuters Use It (Pics)
As the Lagos State Government, LASG, takes the enforcement of the law preventing commuters from crossing the expressway with full force, the Ketu pedestrian bridge currently witness a surge of pedestrians who use the platform to access parts of Ketu to avoid arrest.
What is however scary is the present state of the pedestrian bridge.
The broken pedestrian bridge is gradually giving way. This is because the railings used in holding the advertising boards and directional signs meant for motorists and other road users is completely rust, damaged, and can fall off anytime soon if it faces any form of pressure.
As a result of the current spike in the number of pedestrians who use the bridge daily, the Ketu pedestrian bridge currently shakes and drives fear into the minds of pedestrians who use the platform due to the regular vibrations. Also, parts of the railings pedestrians could use for cushion when tired is rust and might lose its grip at any time.
Speaking to a pedestrian who simply identified herself as Remilekun, she told InsideMainland that the government should make plans to prevent a looming disaster in the area.
“I’m quite surprised that the government announced plans to enforce the ban on crossing the expressway but did not make available the proper amenities that would prevent people from risking their lives to cross the expressway. Using the pedestrian bridge to avoid arrest from KAI is a cause for worry, while the fear that it might collapse due to pressure is another. What is even more shocking is the sight of defecation on parts of the bridge,” she said.
