0 123

The Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Central Business Districts, Mr. Olugbenga Oyerinde, has appealed for patience and understanding of road users, residents and business owners within the CMS Marina axis as reconstruction and rehabilitation work continues on the roads.
Oyerinde made the appeal on Wednesday while supervising traffic control by CBD operatives within Lagos Island, which had been experiencing heavy traffic occasioned by road rehabilitation activities.
He noted that there was the need to continually appeal to motorists, residents and business owners to exercise caution, patience, obey traffic diversions and traffic rules to mitigate the upsurge of traffic buildup as a result of the road rehabilitation work.
His words: “CBD and other relevant traffic agencies have deployed personnel and resources to be on duty to control traffic. Traffic signals and diversion notices have also been made available to ease the flow of traffic. I want to appeal that all road users within the Lagos Island business district should comply with these simple rules, drive safely and slowly, especially around these diversions”.
“To residents and business owners, who live and do business around here, we want to seek their understanding of the present traffic situation. All road construction/rehabilitation comes with attendant inconveniences, as such, we solicit for your perseverance and cooperation during this period”.
Oyerinde explained that the rehabilitation work is going smoothly on various sections of the outer Marina and diversion of traffic from appropriate areas to fast track construction on the important sections have been made.
He noted that due to the rehabilitation work, traffic inward Eko Bridge, Broad Street and connecting inner Marina from Martins Street have, mostly, been affected but pledged the readiness of CBD operatives with other relevant traffic agencies to manage the situation on a daily basis.
The Special Adviser, however, warned miscreants not to take advantage of the traffic situations to perpetrate evil as security agencies are fully on ground to prevent any criminality.
While calling on shop owners and traders to desist from displaying their wares on roadsides and streets, he disclosed that CBD operatives will continue to dislodge illegal traders as well as remove any impediments on road setbacks and drainage alignments.
