Aboru community cries out over collapsing bridge

Published by Tribune on Thu, 12 Feb 2015

Residents of Aboru community in Agbado Oke Odo Local Council Development Area of Lagos have cried out to the state government over the deteriorating condition of one of the bridges that link the community to the rest of the world.Speaking with Community News over the weekend, the residents expressed the displeasure that the recently constructed bridge on Akinola Road had begun to cave in, thereby constituting grave danger to motorists and other users.A resident of the community, Wale Agbomojo, argued that the fact that the bridge was beginning to collapse shortly after it was constructed was enough evidence that the contractor that handled the project did a shoddy job.'The bridge there was constructed by the community. There was nothing wrong with it. But it was pulled down on the excuse that it was too narrow, hence the decision to build this bridge last year.'That the bridge is beginning to cave in shows that the quality of work is poor. I think government needs to act on time since the bridge constitutes serious danger to motorists, especially articulated vehicles,' he said.Another resident, Alhaji Kamorudeen Adisa, urged government not to wait till lives and properties are being lost on the bridge before acting.'I can tell you, if urgent action is not taken, it is a matter of time before we will begin to experience such a situation going by the rate at which the bridge is caving in. For instance, the rods have started coming out leaving a gaping hole on the bridge, and that is why we have put tyres on that spot to prevent vehicles from running over the rods. But unfortunately, the hole has continued to widen,' he lamented.Another resident of the community, who was one of those that worked on the bridge during the construction, stated that the contractor that handled the project had been duly informed and had come to inspect it. He was also of the opinion that the job was of poor quality.'The engineer has been here to inspect the spot. We just hope they would act soon. But the problem is that the bridge was not properly constructed. The contractor did a very shoddy job,' stated the resident, who would not want his name in print.
