In Lagos: LAMATA to introduce bus corridors to boost transportation

The Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) says efforts have been intensified to introduce quality bus corridor in the metropolis to tackle transport challenges.

An Assistant Director of LAMATA, Mr. Kolawole Ojelabi, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, said the government was aware of the need for improved transport service, as a direct consequence of migration to the state.

Ojelabi said road development is being taken gradually for effective management and spread.
He said the government was, therefore, working on quality bus corridors, which would spread to more parts of the metropolis.

He noted that the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) services had not got to every part of the state; hence, the need for creation of the corridors.

Ojelabi said where the BRT services were not available, the government would provide new medium-sized buses to service people’s transportation needs.

The LAMATA assistant director told NAN that the government had intensified efforts to speed up implementation of its Blue Line rail project from Okokomaiko to Marina.

Ojelabi said completion of the road and rail projects would discourage residents of the area from driving their cars to Lagos Island, as they would prefer using train or BRT.
