The Federal Government has temporarily reopened the Mokwa-Jebba road to traffic a day after it collapsed due to a sudden downpour.

A statement by the spokesman of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr. Bisi Kazeem, said palliative repairs had been effected on the bridge while permanent repairs were ongoing.

Kazeem said this was due to prompt action by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola.

He said the Corps Marshal of FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, expressed satisfaction with the promptness with which the remedial work was done.

He said the personnel would still be on ground to carry out traffic control and traffic calming until normalcy is finally restored to the spot.

However, he warned motorists to be lane-disciplined and exercise caution while plying the road.
