The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Kano said the Tsamiya Bakin Gada Bridge would be closed temporarily from Monday.

The bridge, is located on the Kano-Kwana Huguma-Kari Road at Kano-Jigawa border.

This is contained in a statement by the Sector Commander of the FRSC, Zubairu Mato, on Monday in Kano.

The Tsamiya Bakin Gada on Kano-Kwanar Huguma-Kari road was recently damaged by heavy rain storm.

“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.

He assured motorists of FRSC’s commitment to ensure safe traffic flow and solicited the support of sister agencies.
