FG Orders Parked Trucks, Trailers On Lagos-ibadan Expressway To Vacate by dre11(m): 9:10pm On Nov 21
The Federal Government has ordered trucks and trailers parking on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to vacate with immediate effect.

The government lamented that pouring of used petroleum products was capable of destroying the roads.

The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola said this on Saturday at the Stakeholders Town Hall Meeting held at the Ogere end of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Fashola who was accompanied by the governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, said the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway constructed in 1974 and Completed in 1978 was to promote North-south commercial activities.

Fashola while reacting to the activities of truck and trailer drivers on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway told the officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps to enforce traffic compliance on the federal highways.

The Minister blamed the activities of the trucks and trailers drivers on the delay in the completion of work on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Fashola while addressing them said, “The point is that trucking and trailer operation is business if you want to run fleets, then you must plan parking. if the government helps you, the government does so out of compassion but you cannot run your business at the expense of the convenience and the livelihood of millions of people.

“So, money that has been hard to find and the road that has been difficult to build, you have already started pouring diesel on it, that is the beginning of the destruction of the road and my appeal to you today is to immediately leave the road from today, immediately.

“Parking on the highway is a violation of the Federal Highway Act which you (FRSC) have a duty to enforce, so, work with the stakeholders, truck owners, Kabiyesis (monarchs) and State Government, let us find an immediate way to resolve this problem so that contractors can complete their job and respond to those that say it’s (Lagos-Ibadan expressway project) taking too much time.

“This is part of the delay and it’s not just to build the road but also to ensure that the road is properly used and not abused.

“Pouring diesel on the road, changing oil (engine oil) on the road is an abuse of the road. It must stop in the interest of the truckers themselves because without roads, you have no business. Let’s just understand.”

I have to commend detective Fashola on this one...

Not only are they pouring used petroleum products on the road, some of these tanker/trailer drivers do throw out used condoms on the highway which I find disgusting.


Thank you detective Fashola as you take out those miscreants from the highway.

I will be glad if they can relocate the ones on Okene - Lokoja Road to the park that was built for the in Lokoja.

These guys are constituting nuisance, especially around Kabba junction. I spent close to 25 hours in traffic along that road about 6 weeks ago.
It was a terrible experience.

The problem with that road is the hill - portioned part of the bridge (I can't remember if its Kara or Otedola bridge)

Some trucks carrying fuel cannot pull the trailer past it, and that's where the accident occurs

This is very commendable, but I hope Julius Berger does something about that spot.

That place is usually the genesis of most truck accidents on the expressway

Hope truck parks have been built in different locations for proactive measures. So that you won't solve problem by creating more problems.

This time let them match their words with actions cos several times in the past they'd given such orders and the owners of the trucks disobeyed.

I'm sure those trucks belongs to some untouchable Nigerians and sacred cows that's why they flout orders with impunity
