Some road users in Lagos on Friday renewed appeals to the Federal Government to repair the Apapa/Tin Can Island Port Access road, which is again in terrible condition. The road users in interviews told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the bad state of the road caused gridlock, avoidable accidents and was affecting economic activities in the area.
A NAN correspondent who took a trip on the highway on Friday reported that craters were at various portions of the road between the Tin Can Island first and second gates. NAN observed that the craters which were both on the Oshodi and Apapa-bound carriageways, caused slow movement of articulated vehicles on the road, causing gridlock.

NAN further reports that craters are emerging around Coconut, Warehouse, Westminister and Trinity bus stop areas on the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway. Read more
