The Lagos State Government has commended all citizens for their endurance and perseverance in the course of the ongoing rehabilitation works across the State.
In a statement released earlier today, the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde thanked the citizenry immensely for their understanding on the partial closure of the Third Mainland Bridge for maintenance works, which has now progressed to the Island-bound lane of the bridge, as well as other projects across the State.
He explained that the Government is not oblivious of the plight of road users, assuring that concerted efforts are being made towards completing the projects on schedule to minimise travel time and inconveniences presently experienced by residents within the State.
Oladeinde urged motorists to be more patient while driving during this yuletide season, stressing that most impediments are caused largely by unnecessary manoeuvring of vehicle drivers who create five lanes on a two-lane carriageway, as well as incidents of ‘one way driving’ by both private and commercial drivers.
The Commissioner also charged Traffic Management Officers to put in their best by working transparently in line with the Traffic Laws, adding that more strategies will be implemented to reduce the inconveniences that have become part of daily ordeals on the road.
While wishing Lagosians compliments of the season, the Transport Commissioner advised everyone to observe COVID-19 safety protocols in all modes of transportation across the State.
