NIGER State Government has closed down Minna-Bida state-owned road to articulated vehicles due to its deplorable condition, and to allow for its speedy reconstruction.
The official closure of the road took place with a barricade to stop the heavy trucks from accessing the road in Bida.
The closure of the road is coming after the state government had announced the close down of all its roads to articulated vehicles some weeks back.
The Minna-Bida road, which has witnessed incessant breakdown of articulated vehicles on the road, has caused untold hardships on commuters.
Other roads closed are; Lapai-Paiko, Chanchaga Bridge-Maikunkele, Muye-Lapai, and Zungeru-Wushishi roads.
The government assured that the restriction of articulated vehicles on the state-owned roads would be effective as critical stakeholders meetings have been held and the stakeholders are in support of the decision, stressing that the closure only affects the state-owned roads.
The state government warned that any articulated vehicle caught on the closed roads will have themselves to be blame as the government has made widespread publicity on its closure.
It, however, enjoined citizens to show some level of understanding as it is not unaware of the inconveniences the restriction will cause, but it is in the overall interest of the state.
