Gridlock in Apapa will soon be over – FRSC

There was gridlock in most parts of Lagos State due to the presence of heavy-duty trucks occupying the roads.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said that the gridlocks in Apapa, Lagos, which had spread to other parts of the state would soon be a thing of the past.

FRSC Head of Operation in Lagos, Olalekan Morakinyo told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday that the traffic lockdown was as a result of the influx of tankers to Apapa ports.

Morakinyo said that the situation was compounded by the ongoing rehabilitation of roads in Apapa area, adding that the gridlocks would soon be over when the roads were completed.

According to him, many tankers came to Apapa loading bay without a schedule, thus causing the gridlock.

“It begins from lkorodu road and the Western Avenue axis to Ijora.

“As soon as the road is completed all the corridors within the axis will experience the free flow of traffic,” he said.

He urged motorists to be patient and obey traffic officials to ease traffic within the short period of the road rehabilitation.
