Articulated vehicles will not be allowed to ply the second Niger Bridge between Asaba and Onitsha, Anambra, when it opens for temporary use on December 15 for the Yuletide, the FRSC has said.
“From December 15, 2022, to January 1, 2023, the new bridge will be open only to motorists and other road users, coming from the west to the east, through Asaba.
“From January 2 to January 15, 2023, only vehicles coming from the east to the west will be allowed to use the new bridge.
“Heavy-duty trucks and articulated vehicles will not be allowed on the bridge during this period,’’ Anambra sector commander of the FRSC, Adeoye Irelewuyi, stated on Friday in Onitsha, Anambra.
He urged public members to cooperate with all traffic managers to ensure the free traffic flow during the period.
Mr Irelewuyi also stated that the FRSC would collaborate with relevant agencies to ensure that gridlocks experienced at the old bridge were eliminated during the Yuletide.
