NPA supports Lagos with 24 motorbikes to monitor port roads

The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has supported the Lagos State government with 24 new motorbikes to strengthen traffic monitoring and enforcement along the access roads to the Lagos Ports Complex and Tin-Can Island Port. NPA Managing Director, Mr. Mohammed Bello Koko, said the authority had resolved to eradicate gridlocks around all port locations in the country in order to ease the frustration and the delay experienced by firms and persons doing business at the ports.

Bello Koko, who was represented by the authority’s Executive Director Marine and Operations, Onari Brown, at the unveiling of the motorbikes said last year, NPA introduced an electronic truck booking system that imposed sched-uling restrictions on trucks doing business at the port, and in partnership with the Lagos State government, began an enforcement campaign against indiscriminate parking of trucks along the port access roads.

The authority’s General Manager, Corporate and Strategic Communications, Ibrahim Nasiru, said in a statement that the managing director had commended the Lagos State government and its agencies for the support provided to restore sanity on the roads in Apapa and its environs, just as he expressed delight with the progress achieved since the introduction of the electronic call-up system for cargo trucks.
