Acting commissioner for transportation, Olanrewaju Elegushi described the facility as one of the benefits of good governance.

“Its not just a bus stop, it’s a bus stop with layby and other infrastructure around it.

“It is part of the commitment of the state government through the ministry of transportation to dissolve traffic in Lagos, and also to provide shelter.

“It is part of the bus reform programme of the governor.

Permanent secretary of the state transport ministry, Caster Ajibade Bade-Adebowale said the state has a lot of other road projects to be commissioned soon.
