Mooro Bridge: A Look At Kwara's Death Bridge Where Many Crawl To Pass - Photos


When you thought you have seen the weirdest of all roads, you kept seeing more and more till you are dumbfounded and being to ask questions.

This is Moro bridge in Kwara State, you'll cross it on your way from Ilorin, Igbeti/Kishi.  The bridge has come into the spotlight due to the untold hardships people go through on this bridge daily, not only that, its a dangerous place for road users who can only use this road to link to their various destination.

The contractor handling the project has left the site and dump the materials carelessly on the road, for people to pass through this road, they have to line up and crawl like little children else they risk being injured by the irons the contractors abandoned on the road or they fall into the ditch they dug.

According to the images and videos seen online, the situation of things on this road is sorrowful and something urgent needs to be done.

How did Moro Bridge degenerate into this death trap?

According to an investigation made by AutoReportNG, the bridge was collapsed around 2015 and after lots of outcries, the former state governor, Mr Ahmed Fatai decided to repair the road. According to the press release by the Kwara State Government of 8th Nov. 2016, it reads...


Kwara Begins Repair of Collapsed Moro Bridge

Following the release of funds by Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, the repair of the collapsed Moro Bridge on Ilorin-lgbeti highway has begun.

The State Commissioner for Works and Transport, Alhaji Aro Yayaha who made this known in Ilorin, noted that the steel and other materials purchased for the repair have been received.

He also disclosed that the State government had earlier in March this year intervened on the Ohan-bailey Bridge, also in Moro Local Government of the State.

The commissioner explained that although the two bridges are Federal Government facilities, the State Government decided to carry out intervention work on them in order to ease the hardship faced by road users and motorists.

While commending the Federal Government for its interventions on various roads within the State, Alhaji Yayaha urged the central government to reconstruct the two bridges as the lasting solution to preventing their future collapse.

He added that the reconstruction of the bridges will further boost the agricultural activities in the area and the state in general, particularly in easing the transportation of farm produce to commercial destinations.

The questions on our lips are, who is the contractor handling this project? Why did they stop? Did the government pay for this project? Who are those at helms of affairs? Is there follow-up? Why has there not been any tangible thing done after 3 years after this project has been awarded?

We bring to you pictures of when it really collapsed in 2016, pictures when its undergoing repairs and pictures when the contractors abandoned the project.
