Apart from the ambitious Light Rail Project of the Lagos State Government, an ongoing Transport Interchange Project will surely alleviate traffic congestion that has been a major problem in the state.
The Interchange – with one almost completed at Ikeja – is supposed to develop a smooth way by which Lagos residents commute across the state daily and has been promised to be completed by the first quarter of 2019.
Visiting the site of the project, it seems to be in its near-completion state and if work truly continues, having reached an 83 percent state, we should be seeing an ambition turned into reality.
The Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Adebowale Akinsanya said the construction company, Planet Project Limited “has also completed works on the pile caps for the three terminals, concrete works of the buildings, ground floor works on all the loading bays for the three terminals, erection of steelworks for the Skywalks and terminals and Taxi Park and car park area.”
“The project, in a nutshell, seeks to transform Oshodi into a world-class Central Business District (CBD) with business, travel and leisure activities conducted in a serene, secure, clean, orderly and hygienic environment, comparable with other transport terminals around the world including Stratford and Victoria Bus Station in the United Kingdom.
“The project, on completion, would consolidate all the 13 city and interstate bus parks into three multi-storey terminals, providing standard facilities including waiting area, loading bays, ticketing stands, drivers lounge, parking areas, rest rooms, accessible walkways and pedestrian sky-walks linking all the terminals,” Akinsanya said.
The Oshodi Bus Interchange in Lagos is supposed to process up to one million passengers daily when completed.
