FASHOLA TO THE RESCUE: Inspects Traffic Gridlock Points in Mile 2, Apapa, Gives Tanker Drivers Ultimatum

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN), yesterday inspected the traffic gridlock points at the Mile 2 under bridge of the Lagos – Badagry Expressway undergoing expansion and Creek Road in Apapa, extracting a commitment from fuel tanker operators to ease traffic on the roads leading to Apapa within one week.

Residents of the two areas have in the last few weeks complained to the government over the pains of traffic gridlock on the Mile 2 Road caused by a combination of continuous trading on the road and dumping of refuse in the drainage; and the Creek Road and adjoining areas in Apapa rendered impassible by fuel tankers seeking to load fuel from the tank farms in the area.
Fielding questions from journalists after the inspection of Creek Road which has been taken over by the fuel tankers, Fashola said government was prepared to wait for a week as promised by the operators to organise the parking of their tankers in a way that traffic could move on the road, adding that if they complied voluntarily there would be no need for enforcement.
