Niger State Government of Nigeria has closed down Minna-Bida road to articulated vehicles to allow speedy reconstruction of the road.
The road was barricaded to stop the heavy trucks from accessing it from Bida.
Other roads closed were; Lapai-Paiko, Chanchaga Bridge-Maikunkele, Muye-Lapai, and Zungeru-Wushishi.
Alhaji Ibrahim Balarabe, Chairman, state Infrastructure and Monitoring Committee and Chief of Staff to Gov. Sani Bello, led a team from relevant ministries, departments and parastatals to carry out the closure on behalf of the state government.
He said the restriction of articulated vehicles on the state-owned roads would be totally enforced as stakeholders were in support of the decision.
Ibrahim warned that owners of any articulated vehicle caught violating the order would have themselves to blame as the government had carried out wide publicity on its closure.
He enjoined the people to exercise patience and understanding for the inconveniences the restriction would cause, adding that it was for the overall interest of the state.
