Julius Berger Construction Company has issued a warning as well as a pleading announcement to motorists, informing them not to drive against traffic on the Lagos-Abeokuta highway as this was distracting rehabilitation works on the road.
Mr Endre Fuhrmann, the firm’s Infrastructure Supervisor, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ota, Ogun state.
Fuhrmann said that the behaviour of the motorists had slowed down early completion of the job as the workers could no longer concentrate for fear of being knocked down by vehicles.
“Everyday, our staffs work out of fear of being knocked down by errant drivers, this development has distracted us from concentrating fully on the job.
We need to be safety conscious as life is precious to us because an articulated vehicle can knock down any of us,” he said.
He implored motorists to cooperate with the company to ensure quick rehabilitation of the highway.
Fuhrmann explained that apart from affecting the pace of work, the behaviour of the motorists often cause gridlock, adding that the gridlock could stop the workers from performing their job.
