Gridlock: Lagos to restrict movement of trucks says Gov Sanwo-Olu

The Lagos State Government says it plans to restrict the movement of heavy-duty trucks in the metropolis during the day so as to ease traffic on the roads.

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, made this known on Monday at the Lagos House, Ikeja, when a team from the Nigerian Breweries Plc paid him a courtesy visit.

Sanwo-Olu said that the government had been pushing the trailers off that whole corridor of Iganmu area to ensure that the journey towards Apapa continued to remain free.

He said that the state would soon come up with comprehensive plan and decisions on traffic management in order to resolve the gridlock.

Sanwo-Olu said that rehabilitation as well as development needed to happen in all areas of the state.

He said that his administration was committed to rehabilitate Abebe Village Road in Iganmu, clean up carnals as well as major drainage system in the area.

The governor said the Abebe Village Road was strategic and the rehabilitation would further open up the industrial area and ensure Lagos remained a destination that people could do business.

Speaking earlier, the Managing Director of Nigerian Breweries Plc, Mr Jordi Borrut Bel, said that the company was in support of Sanwo-Olu’s visionary call of ‘Awakening a Greater Lagos’.

Borrut Bel commended the investment the administration was making in infrastructural development and security of the state. NAN
