According to the Special Adviser to Governor Akinwumi Ambode on Central Business District (CBD), Agboola Dabiri, this will reduce traffic in that area.
State government to reduce traffic by restricting 'danfo' buses
The Lagos state government is preventing commercial buses from plying Broad Street and Apongon.
“You must have observed that the traffic within Apongbon from Broad Street has been terrible and if you are not careful, from beginning of Apongbon to Surulere can take like five hours. Our ultimate target is to make Broad Street and Apongbon zero tolerant to yellow buses."
This restriction extends towards street trading.
“As of today, we have sealed under the bridge with barb wires; we have enclosed the traders under the bridge within the barb wires so as to prevent them from moving. Each day, millions of people visit Lagos Island for trading, we will do our best to maintain best standard in the CBD.”
Daily Post reports that the announcement was made yesterday, January 13th.
Do you think this restriction of 'danfo' buses will reduce traffic?
