Apapa-Oshodi on lockdown
Then, the traffic on the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway expected another measurement yesterday, as suburbanites and drivers made some rushed memories exploring their objections following absolute barricade of turnpike and administration path by Apapa bound enunciated trucks and big haulers.
Drivers went through a few hours between Fatgbems Junction and Ottor-Wharf.
Oshodi bound suburbanites and drivers were not saved the anguish as business transport drivers, traveling against traffic towards Mile 2, took over Fagbems part of the street loaded with pits, consequently making hard for Oshodi bound drivers to obtain entrance.
The pits on the interstate have caused transporters, suburbanites, drivers and cyclists to utilize the assistance path which condition isn’t pretty much as disgraceful as the turnpike.
This is the reason vehicular development into Apapa is drowsy and requires hours to explore the turbulent traffic.
The state of the street has deteriorated as drivers move more into Apapa.
