|A picture from the Ketu bridge|
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.
In August 2016, InsideMainland exclusively reported the broken state of the pedestrian bridge and that it 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 a reporter that the government should make plans to prevent a looming disaster in the area.
