The Lagos State Government has completed the construction of a modern bus stop and lay by in Alapere – Ketu, Lagos Mainland.
Speaking while commissioning the bus stop, the State’s Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Prince Anofiu Elegushi said the project was in line with the vision of the State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode to ensure that all Lagosians have access to a proper and efficient public transport system compared to anywhere in the world.
Elegushi said the facility, aside going a long way to ensure that transport activities are conducted in a safe and comfortable environment, it would also ensure free-flow of traffic as there would no longer be any disruption to vehicular movement in the axis.
He added that the bus stop was a prototype of the three hundred (300) bus stops and lay-bys that would be constructed across the State under the Bus Reforms Initiative (BRI) which is a project of the present administration designed to bequeath world-class transportation system to the State.
Giving details, Elegushi said: “Facilities at the Alapere Bus Stop include a comfortable Bus Shelter, Lay-by, Lighting, Walkways, Guard-rails and Wire-mesh Fencing for pedestrian protection, passenger information system, amongst others.”
The Alapere Bus Stop was conceptualized, designed and constructed by an indigenous construction firm, Planet Projects Ltd.
