Heavy duty vehicles were seen yesterday morning and afternoon plying the Kugbo-Nyanya road, despite restrictions by the FCT Administration.
Due to numerous accidents that claimed lives on that road, the FCT authorities restricted their movements on the road during rush hours.
A motorist who spoke to our reporter, called for effective monitoring by FCTA officials of the restriction to avoid accidents.
"Now that people are back from the festive period and traffic gridlock has resumed on that road, it is advisable such trucks are stopped during rush hour," the motorist, Akeem Balogun said.
Thompson Balogun, one of the commuters said thus: "You can see that the gridlock is back and we have started spending hours again on the road.
"I had hoped that the government would have used the little opportunity of the ease on the road to do something that would make the gridlock to finally cease. Another commuter, Mr Jeremiah Uzodike, said: "New year, new stress for commuters on this road; we just hope that very soon a far-reaching solution will be found.
"This has been the trend; during the Yuletide when there was exodus of people to their home towns the gridlock disappeared. The Yuletide is over, the agony has returned.
"For how long shall we continue to go round and round in this unending vicious circle?" Uzodike asked.
Mrs Patricia Tamara implored the government to come to the aid of the commuters on the route.
"Both the FCT Administration and the Nasarawa State Government should come together and fashion out a way forward to alleviate the sufferings of the people.
