Gridlock: Lagos bans trucks, trailers from plying roads in the state during day time



The Lagos State Government on Wednesday, January 27, banned trucks and trailers from plying roads in the state during day time..

The state Commissioner for Transportation, Frederic Oladeinde, made the announcement in Ikeja, when he met with various truck owners in the state.

According to him, trucks and trailers were now restricted to night operations on dedicated routes between the hours of 9pm to 6am daily in order to avert rising carnage’s on roads during daytime.

He said the move was necessary as the Apapa area of the state has been rendered less profitable for investors in all sectors due to the gridlock and activities of truck drivers along the axis, appealing further to Stakeholders to cooperate with the State Government to remedy the situation.
