Babatunde Fashola, minister of power, works and housing, has announced the collapsed of a bridge linking Jalingo and Wukari at Maraban Gassol in Taraba state.

Fashola, in a statement signed by Theodore Ogaziechi, director of information in the ministry, said the incident occurred after a downpour on Wednesday evening.

He said the contractor on the axis had been mobilised to commence emergency palliative to ease the flow of traffic on the road.

The minister, therefore, urged motorists to use an alternate route through Jalingo – Garba Cheda – Bali – Takum – Katsina Ala, adding that palliative work would commence on Thursday.

He said Boboye Oyeyemi, the corps marshal, Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), had deployed road marshals to the scene of the incident to ease the diversion of traffic on the route.

Fashola said motorists and the general public would be informed of further developments on the route as the palliative work progresses.
