WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO FIX APAPA TRAFFIC IN 60 DAYS?
On the morning of May 28, 2019, the roads leading to Apapa Terminal in Lagos were all clear. There were no trucks or articulators seen on major highways such as Costain, through to Orile or Ijora axis of Lagos State. This is good news for residents of the area and other Lagosians who make use of the roads to get to their various places of work. They could easily get to work without heavy traffic.
Where did the heavy-duty trucks go? A reliable source said that many of these entered streets nearby and looked for places to park. In effect, one could say that the problem of Apapa traffic has been fixed for once.
Callers on the Morning Crossfire, and social media users, related their painful experiences using that route, while at the same time giving their own opinions on what contributed to the gridlock and how the gridlock issue should be put to an end. The problem, which has been lingering for about six years, took a new disposition when President Muhammadu Buhari made the call that the gridlock should be cleared in 72 hours.
