By Nwosu Obianuju : The frequency of accidents involving articulated vehicles and trucks on top of the magnificent Flyovers in Awka capital city lends credence to government’s decision to erect barricade restricting heavy and articulated vehicles from climbing and descending the bridge. Another accident involving a moving truck and an SUV occurred early Sunday at the Aroma and Reports indicate that occupants of the SUV were evacuated to hospital by the traffic authorities.
According to the eye witness, Mr Ejim Offor he said the accident was a terrible sight. The men of the road safety commission and the police who visited the accident scene lamented on the absence of the flyover’s barriers occasionally knocked down by unauthorized vehicles.
It will be recalled that attempts have been made by the Anambra State Government to install warning signs before the flyovers but these efforts have occasionally being thwarted by some heavy duty trucks that knocked down the barriers against public interest.
