The Lagos State Government has announced plans to construct multilayer car parks in strategic locations across the State as part of the traffic management and transport sector reforms aimed at ensuring seamless connectivity within the State.
The State Commissioner for Waterfront Infrastructure Development, Engr Ade Akinsanya, who disclosed this in a statement obtained by InsideMainland, said the multilayer car parks would be constructed across the State within the next 12 months.
While stating that the State Government was open to partnership with interested investors willing to collaborate with government on the project, Akinsanya said the move to construct the multilayer car parks was a prelude to the enactment of revised Parking Authority Law, all in a bid to rid the State of indiscriminate parking on the roads which in turn contribute in no small measure to traffic gridlock.
“The Lagos State Government is desirous to have multilayer car parks across the State in the next 12 months. This is in consonance with the government’s proposed traffic management and transport sector reforms and as a prelude to the enactment of the State’s revised Parking Authority Law,” he said.
“Consequently, interested investors with either private lands or proposed government land suitable for the construction of multilayer car parks and auxiliary structure are hereby requested to submit proposals for the approval for construction of the car parks in any of the following areas – Ikoyi, Ikeja, Victoria Island, Badore, Ajah, Lekki Phase 1, Ipaja, Yaba, Ikorodu, Mushin, Surulere, Festac Town, Lagos Island and other areas deemed suitable,” Akinsanya added.
