In the aftermath of the traumatic traffic gridlock experienced by motorists and residents plying the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway, the Lagos State Government has concluded plans to clear the axis of goods vehicles to ease vehicular movement in the area.
According to information reaching us at InsideMainland, the exercise would commence on Saturday, July 21 and end on Monday, July 23, 2018.
The planned operation, Operation Restore Sanity, will involve hundreds of police, traffic and military personnel, just as several union representatives are expected to participate in the action.
Motorists are urged to be wary of minor confrontations between transport drivers and the security forces during the operation.
In addition, it is expected that road travel disruptions along the route and nearby roads are likely to persist through Monday, July 23, 2018, at least.
Motorists and residents alike who have important issues to resolve along the axis and other communities in Lagos Mainland are advised to plan for continued road travel delays through Sunday, July 29, 2018.
Furthermore, motorists are urged to plan ahead for additional travel time to reach their destinations.
Meanwhile, residents are advised to avoid the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway if possible and look out for concentrations of security personnel as a precaution.
Also, motorists should exercise caution and keep valuables out of sight in congested roadways due to the threat of crime by lurking petty thieves.
