As part of efforts to find lasting solution to the recurring gridlock along Mile 2 – Apapa expressway, a temporary truck park to hold about 3,000 trucks and tankers is to be completed in the next two months.
The project is being financed by a private firm, supported by a body working for a permanent solution to the perennial traffic situation along the route.
The forum being championed by the Customs Area Controller of Kirikiri Lighter Terminal, Benjamin Aber, includes all government agencies operating around the port area, truck drivers, ministry of works, agencies of the Lagos state government etc.
Aber said at the inspection located at Kirikiri town, that apart from the temporary park, the piece of land around Amuwo – Odofin acquired by the truck drivers will be used as the permanent truck holding bay.
The Customs boss said the committee intends to create a no parking, no stopping corridor on both sides of the expressway from Mile 2 to Apapa.
