The rain which fell heavily for several hours particularly on Lagos Island left commercial activities paralised in the business district.
Most worst hit areas were the three exit points- Carter, Second mainland and Third mainland bridges.
Speaking with Broad Street Diary, BSD, some motorists lamented the hardship caused by the traffic gridlock and their inability to get to their place of work on time.
In the midst of the traffic, many commuters have to disembark from their vehicles and started trekking to their different destinations.
A motorist whose did not disclose his name said; “the traffic is too much because of the heavy rain. The whole roads have been flooded.”
Something has to be done to forestall further occurrence of this.
A driver who simply identified himself as yusuf adekanbi said he had been in traffic for over two hours and consequently most of his commuters had resorted to trekking.
“I have been in this hold-up for about two hours and I am still on this bridge. I wish I could just abandon my bus and walk to the park. I am going to CMS which should not take me less than ten minutes. But here I am still here at past five since some minutes to three.”
