Apapa-Oshodi Gridlock: Government Constitues Ad hock Committee


In a bid to find lasting solution to the perennial traffic gridlock along the Apapa-Oshodi expressway, the government has constituted an ad hock committee made up of representatives from key stake holders in the transport and maritime sectors as well as law enforcement agencies.

The General Manager, Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Mr Olawale Musa, while addressing newsmen yesterday, November 22, in Lagos, decried the actions of tanker drivers whom he said have continued to pack along the road indiscriminately thereby blocking the free flow of traffic.

He however explained that the newly constituted task force consisting of the police, the Navy, LASTMA and others, would soon swing into action to enforce compliance of set down rules which he claimed the drivers have been flouting for some time now.

Mr Musa maintained that without enforcement of the traffic rules, the Apapa-Oshodi gridlock would never be resolved.

He therefore appealed on all stake holders and the general public to held the ad hock committee to succeed in their assignment for economic growth and the overall well being of Nigerians.
