Stakeholders seek traffic management plan for Apapa/Wharf Road
Honeywell Commissions Remodeled Apapa Roundabout
To forestall total collapse of business activities in Apapa as the reconstruction works on the road begins July 7, stakeholders have resolved that a meeting should be convened between traffic regulatory agencies, Law enforcement agencies and the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), on July 3 to fashion out a traffic management/diversion plan for the project.
Rising from a meeting, they agreed that the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing and the NPA should collaborate to repair all bad portion of the diversion routes, including Tin Can Island Road, Creek Road and Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, which will experience heavy traffic.
Presenting a communiqué at the end of the meeting, the Federal Controller for Works, Lagos state, Godwin Eke and a Consultant of AG Dangote Construction Company Limited, Kayode Opeifa agreed to remove all parked trailers on the road immediately.
The Federal Government in June this year, signed a N4.34Billion Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the revamp of the Apapa/Wharf Road. The Project is funded by AG. Dangote Construction Company Limited, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and Flour Mill of Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the second gate Tincan Island roundabout at Apapa, has been remodeled by Honeywell Flour Mills Plc, which commissioned the structure yesterday. Presenting the structure to the management of NPA, the company noted that the idea was conceived to complement government efforts to make the environment conducive.
Managing Director, Mr. Lanre Jaiyeola urged NPA to collaborate with the Ministry of Works to accelerate the completion of the trailer park in the community, to further promote easy access to the port, increase revenue generation to the government and make commuting easier. He also called on the government to revisit the Oshodi/Mile 2/TinCan Island Apapa express road with a view to making it motorable.
