Motorists and residents of the Olodo community in the Egbeda Local Government Area of Ibadan, Oyo State capital, on Thursday, appealed to Governor Seyi Makinde to intervene in the conditions experienced on the road.

Reports have it that the state government had awarded the reconstruction of the Ibadan-Iwo Road, which is a federal road, and the contractor handling the bridge assured the government that the first phase of the two-phase span would be completed early this year.

However, residents made this appeal when the only alternative route to ease the movement of people was washed away by a flood following a torrential rain early on Thursday.

Hundreds of commuters, travellers, and residents plying the alternative bridge were stranded as a result of the flood that overflowed and washed away the bridge.

There was heavy traffic as a result of the flood, leading to hours of waiting before road users could access the bridge.
