Motorists, commuters stranded on failed Enugu-PH Expressway


UMUAHIA – Hundreds of  motorists and commuters were weekend stranded for several hours at the Lokpanta Nta [Cattle Market] portion of the dilapidated Enugu-Port Harcourt express road as a result of the deplorable condition of the Federal road.

The road has become almost impassable, to the extent that motorists on both  sides of the road have virtually turned to death traps.

Motorists still risk plying the road as there is no alternative from Enugu to Okigwe, Umuahia, Aba and Port Harcourt.
The only other alternative involves  going round through Awka, in Anambra State, a journey that will take no less than six hours.

An alternative local village route at Umuchieze in the same Umunneochi council where idle youths collect toll, has also gone bad.
