Ambode Kick-Starts Expansion Of Orile Truck Terminal

Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode yesterday kick started the expansion of the 1000-capacity ABAT Truck Terminal in Orile-Iganmu.

The work on the terminal, which is meant to take trucks parked indiscriminately on Lagos roads and bridges especially in the Apapa axis, would be accelerated, Ambode said.

Ambode, who toured some ongoing projects in the state, said the project was aimed at taking containerised trucks off the roads, to ease the Apapa gridlock.

He said: “One of the resolutions is that we should have authorised truck terminal Park and so my visit to this place today is to flag off the reconstruction of this terminal so that we can accommodate 1000 trucks.

“We would do this in collaboration with the Nigeria Ports Authority so that the call-up system can work efficiently. The expansion we are adding to this particular terminal in which we have decided to acquire the adjoining land, we would use that primarily for non-petroleum trucks so that we can sectionalise these trucks and allow the call-up system to work.

“This is just part of the efforts that the state government is making to ensure this Apapa gridlock and the truck menace becomes a thing of the past permanently.”
