The Presidency and stakeholders at Apapa ports have disagreed over the pace of work in the area.
While the Presidency commended the pace of work by contractors handling the roads leading to and from Apapa ports and its environment, the stakeholders said it wasn’t true, insisting gridlock was still very much around in the area.
However, a statement by the Presidency after a virtual meeting attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and other stakeholders, noted the stages of critical road infrastructure.
Some of the roads include Apapa Wharf Road, completed; 1.4km Liverpool Road, almost completed but open for public use; 2.9km Creek Road, almost completed, but open for public use; Apapa-Oshodi Expressway from Tin Can Port Gate 1 to Mile 2, at advanced stage of completion, and Tin Can Island Transit Truck Park, completed and now in use.
