The Vice-Chairman of the Presidential Task Team, Mr Kayode Opeifa has attributed the renewed gridlock along Oshodi-Apapa Expressway to the tidal effect of the Atlantic Ocean as a result of persistent rainfall which has left most parts of Lagos flooded.
Opeifa also blamed the gridlock to various potholes along Lagos-Badagry Expressway, on both sides as well as construction work being undertaken by Hi-Tech Construction company.
He said that the backlog of vessels discharged of consignments at the seaport during the lockdown on COVID19 could also be attributed to the current gridlock and congestion at Can Island Port Complex,TCIPC, even as the combined traffic personnel deployed to the access road were yet to proffer solution to the perennial gridlock.
Opeifa, however, said plans were ongoing to engage the contractor on the need to deploy palliative to the bad portion of the road in order to create easy access for motorists.
