Anaocha Local Government Authority in Anambra State has issued a public notice barring heavy duty and articulated vehicles from plying Agulu Lake Bridge due to incessant accidents on the bridge.

The public notice which is contained in a press statement issued yesterday further informed that henceforth heavy duty vehicles like Dangote trucks, petroleum trucks and others will no longer use the bridge but a detour to prevent fatalities on the bridge.

The press statement reads, “The Transition Committee Chairman, Anaocha Local Government Area, Hon Patrick Estate Onyedum by this announcement, pleads with motorists especially heavy duty vehicles to henceforth, follow Nneogidi route as the Local Government Authority has barricaded the Agulu Lake bridge.

“This means that only cars and buses can now pass through the route. This move is to reduce the number of road crashes that have become regular on the Agulu Lake Bridge road.

“Consequently, any heavy duty vehicle found disobeying this order or forcing its way through the barricade will be handed over to security agencies to face the full weight of the Law.”
