CMS/Marina Rehabilitation: Lagos Central Business Districts (CBD) calls for patience, support of road users.
This appeal comes as reconstruction and rehabilitation work continues on the CMS Marina axis.
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.
