Influx of petroleum tankers responsible for Apapa gridlock, says FRSC

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said that the perennial gridlock in Apapa area, which had spread to other parts of Lagos would soon be a thing of the past.
FRSC Head of Operation in Lagos, Olalekan Morakinyo, told newsmen on Saturday that the gridlock was as a result of the influx of tankers to Apapa ports.
Morakinyo said that the situation was compounded by the ongoing rehabilitation of roads in Apapa area, adding that the gridlocks would soon be over when the roads were completed.
According to him, many tankers came to Apapa loading bay without schedule, thus causing the gridlock.
“It begins from lkorodu road and the Western Avenue axis to Ijora.
“As soon as the road is completed all the corridors within the axis will experience free flow of traffic,” he said.
He urged motorists to be patient and obey traffic officials to ease traffic within the short period of the road rehabilitation.
Lagos State Government on Friday asked trailers to keep away from Lagos roads until resolution of the traffic logjam.
