Aftermath Presidential Order: Images From Eko Bridge, Ijora 7up & More

Lagosians can finally breathe a breath of fresh air as finally, the tanker menace on Lagos roads seem to have disappeared at least for now. In a follow-up exercise carried out by Nelson Ekujumi, he noted that 80% of the tankers and trailers have so far evacuated the road and the road is free from traffic.Some of the images of show of Dorman Long bridge, Jibowu, National Stadium Surulere bridge, Alaka inward Eko bridge and the diversion into Ijora/Apapa devoid of parked trailers and trucks waiting to go into Apapa port today Monday 27th May 2019 at 9.41am.However, some of the trailers are still parked on the Ijora 7up bridge inward Apapa on queues to approach the ports as the Presidential directive committee has reduced their stretch and made them totally absent on the Ikorodu road from Onipanu, Jibowu, Dorman Long bridge, Ojuelegba, National stadium Surulere bridge, Alaka Surulere inward Eko bridge and the whole stretch of Eko bridge.Tankers, trailers and other articulated vehicles that lined up the port access roads in Lagos have been evacuated from the roads.This follows the seventy-two hours ultimatum from the Presidency.As at this morning, Apapa road, Eko bridge, Ijora 7up bridge and other locations formerly occupied by trailers and trucks are free of such vehicles.Their evacuation is supervised by a committee of the Federal Government.Motorists using that routes pleads with the government that the development is sustained.They called on the Government to extend the gesture to the Lagos Badagry expressway where trailers and Trucks have taken over three of the four lanes from Alakija to Barracks.We do hope this is maintained and supervised to the latter, unlike last year when a presidential order was given and it was disobeyed by these trailers and their owners.AutoReportNG, however, noted that some Dangote trucks were still seen on Eko Bridge despite these order. We also note that the LASTMA officials along with FRSC have been going around with heavy-duty vehicles to toll any truck that defaults these orders.These are images from Lagos roads this morning.Images courtesy: Nelson EkujumiNOTE:We have about 65 images from all these roads so far but trust us, we are mindful of your data here but if you still want to see more of these transformations on Lagos roads, please check on the source for more of the images starting from Sunday afternoon.Source:
