On Saturday, numerous Lagos State residents bemoaned the growing difficulty of travelling following over 24 hours of gridlock in various sections of the state.

A number of locations, including the Ojodu Berger inner Lagos-Ibadan expressway, the Kara outward Berger, the Ikorodu road, and the Berger/Ogunnusi road, experienced congestion.

According to the report, the gridlock may be due to the highway’s traffic being diverted after the Kara Bridge portion in order to repair the always congested route through Mowe, Ogun State.

Lagosians lamented the issue even as they used social media to lament the effects of the deepening gridlock.

Jumoke Odetola, an actress in Nollywood, reported she spent 10 hours Saturday stuck in traffic going from Ajah to the state’s Magodo region.

“How can somebody have long life and prosperity in this Lagos, with this crazy traffic? 🤷‍♀️ Yesterday, I finished work at 4 pm, and I didn’t get home until 2 am (Ajah-Magodo)…10hrs! Lagos to Lagos! The time that could have been put into productive work or relaxation.

“This morning again, Lagos- Ibadan expressway is marking the attendance of wickedness, it’s doing competition of na me wicked pass.

“Woos, e be like say na to dey sleep for house sure pass. Independent woman in the mud, I no do again,” the actress wrote on her Instagram page.

Also on the microblogging platform, Twitter, a user with the handle @Giwason09 described the gridlock as “unbelievably distressing”.

@Giwason09 wrote: “The traffic impact the Lagos-Ibadan expressway has on the entirety of Lagos cannot be overemphasized. One small road repair on any axis between Berger and Arepo can translate into traffic as far as Anthony down to the Ojota interchange. It is unbelievably distressing.”

Also, @SunkyInc wrote, “There should be lawsuits against Julius Berger Construction and Engineering for the untold hardship and professional recklessness whenever they are constricting a major road. The daily suffering road users go through daily along construction sites is out of this world.”

“This Lagos na case. Ibadan – Lagos Max 2 Hours. Ogudu – Ojodu Berger 4 Hours 15 mins. How person go take live long for inside this Lagos,” @tweetsbygoody said,

On his part, @PiusGeek wrote, “Ilorin to Berger <4 hours. Berger to Ayobo > 4 hours! It will never make sense to me. Mostly man-made traffic but y’all enjoy!
