Motorists in the Apapa axis in Lagos state would soon heave a sigh of relief as the state government has begun massive movement of trucks that have for many months, caused obstruction to the free flow of traffic in that area.
Petrol tankers have for many months been parked on major roads in the state and also on the bridges.
Over the weekend, the state government alongside a joint task force, began the evacuation of these tankers.
According to the state’s monitoring team’s official twitter handle, over 2000 articulated vehicles were removed from the road including Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, Funsho Williams Avenue and Mile 2-Orile Road and taken to seven designated holding bays.
According to some residents living in that area, traffic was light today and they arrived home on time.
