|Why Ibeju Lekki Will Not Become The New Apapa. by DANBELPIL: 3:04pm On Apr 10|
Most people who have been caught up in the deadly Apapa gridlock are understandably concerned about the possibility of a repeat in Ibeju Lekki.
Apapa is home to Nigeria's two major ports, which handle 75 percent of the country's overall imports. However, major problems such as traffic, a bad road network, dysfunctional transit practices, inefficient logistics networks, and weak infrastructure have rendered Apapa a daunting spot to visit throughout the years.
The presence of the world's largest single-train refinery and a deep seaport and many manufacturing industries has raised concern amongst investors about the possible gridlock once they are all fully operational. However, the Lagos State and Federal Governments and the Dangote Group have taken steps that show promising signs.
Ibeju Lekki is a border city in Lagos State, less than 40 minutes away from Ijebu Ode, unlike Apapa, which is situated in the city center. The roads connecting Lagos and Ijebu Ode by Epe have been extended and tarred by the federal government in cooperation with Ogun and Lagos' state governments.
The Lagos State government has started the Eti Osa-Lekki-Epe Road expansion project to further alleviate future traffic congestion. The project's first phase, which began in November 2020, aims to expand the two-lane 18.75-kilometer road from Eleko to Epe T-Junction to a six-lane road with three lanes on each side. A lane on each side will be reserved as a toll weighbridge only for heavy-duty vehicles, such as tankers, container trucks, and construction trucks, to help organize their operations.
