The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said that the reconstruction of the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway will commence in two weeks.
Professor Osinbajo stated that the reconstruction is part of the Federal Government’s plan to find a lasting solution to the gridlock around the axis.
He disclosed this during a dialogue on Thursday with stakeholders in the company of the State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode; Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; Managing Director of Nigeria Ports Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala-Usman, among others.
He said aside from the economic implications, it was also an important residential community that must be allowed to thrive.
Addressing other issues involving the movement of cargo from the Apapa Ports, the Vice President said the Federal Government was in talks with a concessionaire to rehabilitate the narrow gauge rail, which according to him, will aid the quick movement of goods pending the construction of a standard gauge.
