The ongoing reconstruction work on Creek Road and Liverpool Road in Apapa, Lagos, may have compelled the Presidential task force on Apapa gridlock to force the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing to temporarily open the Tin Can Island truck transit park to ease the perennial gridlock along the port access road.
The presidential task force managing the Apapa gridlock has directed that the transit park be opened to take trucks off the roads, though the park is yet to be completed and officially handed over to the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).

The truck park has been under construction for more than ten years.
The project has, however, suffered delay despite repeated assurances by the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing that it would be completed in April 2019.
It would be recalled that the Managing Director of NPA, Hadiza Bala Usman, had asked that the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing to hand over the Tin Can trailer park to the authority to complete the shoreline protection.
