NPA takes new measures to ease Apapa gridlock

The Nigerian Ports Authority is set to license new trailer parks in the Apapa area of Lagos as a way of creating holding bay facilities for truck drivers as part of measures to decongest the area and free it of traffic gridlock.
In the interim, to effectively manage the traffic situation around the Apapa area the NPA stated in a statement on Friday by its General Manager, Corporate and Strategic Communications, Abdullahi Goje,that with effect from November 23, 2017, all shipping companies must house their empty trucks at their holding bays outside of the port location pending the time for vessel loading.

It added, “Trucks called up to access the port must maintain a single lane profile as designated by the new traffic management/enforcement team comprising the Nigeria Police, Federal Road Safety Corps, Lagos State Transport Management Agency, Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps and NPA Security.

“Tramping trucks milling around in search of customers within the port area will be impounded by the inter-agency traffic management/enforcement team and dealt with in accordance with the law.”

In addition, the NPA said it would deploy an effective call-up system, which would link the port gate with the trailer park facilities and as such, trucks would only be called up at the appropriate time.

It reiterated its commitment to the Federal Government policy on ease of doing business, adding that it would employ every legal means to ensure that there was sanity on the roads leading to the ports.
