The Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Central Business Districts, Mr. Olarenwaju Olugbenga Oyerinde has expressed the need for government agencies and security operatives to harmonise their operations in the Lagos Central Business District towards a seamless traffic situation.
The SA said that all government agencies must be ready to ensure that hitches associated with the partial closure of the Third Mainland bridge and the high influx of shoppers and traders into the island, especially for Sallah shopping are curtailed and well managed.
He disclosed that bottleneck areas and flashpoints within the business district have been identified and will be manned by enforcement officers and security operatives to ensure that traffic and environment issues are well managed.
Oyerinde further stated that CBD, in conjunction with other government agencies, will form a committee that will embark on massive joint patrol of the district enclaves during the period to ensure that traffic, waste management and security challenges are addressed.
The Special Adviser said that the Lagos Island Branches of the National Union of Road Transport Workers through its caretaker committee, have expressed readiness to work with the government to ensure free traffic flow during the period of partial closure and beyond.
He decried the untoward attitude of shoppers parking vehicles on the bridges and roads, as well as commercial vehicles dropping and picking passengers in unauthorised places, warning that vehicles impounded during the critical period of the partial closures will not be released.
