“The extent of the damage became a serious safety threat to motorists plying the route. The bridge would be closed from August 30, 2021. traffic would be diverted to alternative routes in Jigawa State such as Birnin Kudu (College of Nursing junction- through Kengere village-through Dutse- Kwana Huguma Road),” said Mr Mato.

He pointed out that the diversion would be a temporary solution pending completion of the reconstruction of the damaged bridge.

“In line with this, the FRSC wishes to inform the general motoring public in order to forestall disaster due to possible collapse,” the statement added.

Mr Mato enjoined motorists plying the route to note this and drive carefully on the alternative route.
