Manager of Lagos State-owned transportation hub, Oshodi Transport Interchange, Planet Projects Limited, has said that on-going talks with stakeholders in the inter-city transport services will soon lead to the take-off of the second terminal at the interchange.Its Managing Director, Biodun Otunola, said the stakeholders, including the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), are responding positively and showing commitment
“If things go as planned, Terminal 2 will be in full operations by end of February,” he said.Otunola praised the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his leadership in speeding up the operations of the interchange, said: “The recent facility visit to the Oshodi- Abule-Egba BRT and the deadline to contractors to deliver in May sent positive signals to the international transportation community that Lagos State is fully committed to overhauling its transport infrastructures. It is important to inform the public that the take-off and arrival facility for the BRT has already been provided in Terminal 1.”
Otunola said the interchange would be very strict in screening the vehicles that can ply the interchange to ensure the safety of passengers and their satisfaction. “We have to be strict in assessing the vehicles that can use the facility. We don’t want a vehicle to pick people here only to develop mechanical problems on the road,” he said.
