It was reported that the Berger construction company was conducting repairs on various parts of the road. However, traffic worsened on Monday.
It was observed that the gridlock started from Magboro, Ogun State inward Lagos State on Monday early hours.
A traveller, Oyinda Kazeem, regretted travelling, noting that she missed her appointment due to the traffic.
She said, “I had an appointment with a mentor I haven’t seen in a long time so I travelled from Ibadan. He is travelling overseas tomorrow. I don’t think I’ll see him.”
A worker in a private firm, John Adah, told our correspondent he had to pack his car by the roadside and take an okada to Lagos to meet an appointment.
He said, “I need to get these documents signed otherwise we will lose the contract. I don’t have a choice but to run. I’ll come back to the car.”
Another commuter, who simply identified herself as Ayomide, said her boss was beginning to doubt her commitment to work as he always resumed late to work due to the traffic.
Meanwhile, commercial vehicles and motorcycles hiked their fares by over 300%, charging about N1000 for a trip from Ibafo to Berger.
