Weeks after the official commissioning of the Abule Egba bridge by Governnor Akinwunmi Ambode, commercial motorists and residents of the area have expressed their demands to the state government.
According to the residents and some motorists in the area, the government needs to re-introduce motor parks in the area in order to enhance the free flow of traffic within the community.
The residents claim the ultra-modern bridge which was constructed to address the perennial gridlock within the axis has been causing lots of disorder from law enforcement officers, commercial drivers and the commuters plying the Sango-Oshodi route.
Speaking to Nigerian Tribune, Mr. Oluwaferanmi Akinwale, a commuter, said that “leaving the whole area without designated bus stops and parks could be an invitation to chaos which means that commercial bus drivers or even private car owners would be stopping anyhow or anywhere to drop or pick passengers. That might bring back the days of gridlock on the route.”
Also a resident of the area, Agnes, believes that the provision of bus stops and designated parks would bring order back to the area
