NASS CALLS FOR THE REHABILITATION OF IKORODU LIGHTER TERMINAL ROAD

The House of Representatives on Wednesday urged the Nigerian Ports Authority to take advantage of vacant land along the Lagos-Ikorodu road to create modern trailer parks and ensure that only trailers scheduled for loading have access to the lighter terminal vicinity.

It also urged the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to give strict warnings and subsequently penalize any trailer that parks indiscriminately on the Ogolonto-Ebute road in Lagos.

 

 

BlackBox Nigeria gathered that the decision followed a motion sponsored during Wednesday’s plenary by Mr. Babajimi Benson who represents Ikorodu federal constituency of Lagos.

Mr. Benson while explaining on the floor said due to the continued growth in the terminal’s containerised and bulk cargo haulage businesses, there has been an increasing number of trailers, flat bed and container laden plying the Ogolonto to Ebute route in Ikorodu Federal Constituency.

 

 

To this end, the House urged the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing to immediately commence palliative works on the road to ensure that travel time is reduced.
