APAPA TRAFFIC: Why Tin-Can Trailer Park Is Yet To Take-off
Part of the reasons often advocated for the perennial Apapa traffic gridlock is the establishment of a trailer Park so those trucks don’t have to queue along major highways leading to Apapa.
The Apapa port landlord, the Nigeria Ports Authority, NPA is building one at Tin Can, and it has yet to take off because of technical hitches.
This is according to Mr Jatto Adams, who is the General-Manager, Corporation Communications of NPA.
Adams told the News Agency of Nigeria NAN in Lagos that the Federal Ministry of Works, Housing and Power had finally gotten approval for the completion of the park.
“The park as you know is located beside the shoreline. So it is the barricade of the shoreline that needs to be protected.
“Now that the work has been approved, the park will soon come alive as the port area will be free of gridlock,” Adams said.
Adams also said that the park, which would act as a buffer to trucks plying the ports in Lagos would help clear the roads of parked articulated vehicles.
