N12Bn Needed To Unlock Apapa Gridlocks – Report

412x266xApapa-tankers-2015.jpg.pagespeed.ic.co3cgVMt7vA comprehensive report by a joint Technical Committee of Federal and Lagos State governments has mapped out strategies to put an end to the intractable crises of traffic congestion, security threat and infrastructure collapse in Apapa, Lagos.

The committee, which was co-chaired by former Minister for Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and the present Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Olatunji Bello, in its report, put the cost of restoring order to Apapa at N11.60 billion.
But the report sent to the National Economic Council in September 2012 did not include the cost of dualising Wharf, Creek and Tin Can roads, which was one of the 13 regeneration projects identified for redevelopment.
The report said the Federal Ministry of Works was supposed to provide the Council details about the cost and design of Wharf, Creek and TinCan roads, which formed the most strategic project in the Apapa regeneration plan.
