“The slack that is supporting the bridge is off the erosion is chopping into the middle of the road, and no one is paying attention to it.

“We don’t want any disaster to happen before they come with excavators to save lives,” a motorist plies the road frequently told JoyNews.

He is among many others who are calling on authorities to fix the problem before it gets out of hand.
