Finally the killer bridge has been uprooted..

The 'killer bridge"

When the rumor of the dilapidated pedestrian bridge at Sadiku Bus-stop in Ilasamaja area of Lagos metropolis went viral on the internet, the government admonished the people and cautioned them from sending fake news but in actual truth, the truth was that the bridge was bound to kill and destroy if not removed.
The government immediately sent officials to inspect the bridge they once refurbished, painting its railings. a blockage was put at both exits of the bridge and on Saturday the first of September, 2012  the demolition started.
The office of the  Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) said the demolition and re-building of the bridge will take four months and were seen around the area yesterday assisting pedestrians to cross the highway and also to ensure free flow of traffic.

Lagos State Government said that the demolition was to avoid preventable loss of life... hmmmm

what is left of the bridge as at today Tuesday the 3rd of Sept. 2012
