Lagos Govt To Replace Banned Motorcycles And Tricycles From July

Starting from July this year, the Lagos State government will introduce what it describes as First Mile and Last Mile (FMLM) mobility solution to replace banned Okada and tricycle.

According to IgbereTV reports, the Lagos State Transportation Commissioner Frederick Oladeinde, stated this yesterday at the 2020 ministerial press briefing at the JJT Park, Alausa, Ikeja.

He said: “Following the restriction of motorcycles and tricycles for commuter operations in some areas in the metropolis, the government is working on implementing a First Mile and Last Mile (FMLM) mobility solution.”

He said that Okada and tricycle are not part of the state’s transport plan, adding that they contribute a lot to the high rate of road accident and crime witnessed in the state.

“We have identified 285 last mile routes within the seven bus reform initiative zones across Lagos. We have developed bus specifications and shared same with potential bus manufacturers. We expect these to be rolled out in the next two months,” Oladeinde said.’

Lagos State Government has inaugurated 37 roads and carried out repairs and rehabilitation of more than 354 others.

It said that ongoing and uncompleted projects inherited from past administrations would be completed to improve the living standard of Lagosians.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Works and Infrastructures, Aramide Adeyoye, who spoke yesterday at the 2020 ministerial press briefing at the JJT Park, Alausa, Ikeja said that one of the major projects inherited by the administration, which would be completed, was the Agege Pen Cinema flyover bridge designed to reduce travel time for residents of Ifako-Ijaiye, Agege and Alimosho local governments.

She stated that the administration plans to expand the Agege-Berger Road to reduce travel time. She also said that the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration will complete work on the 4th Mainland Bridge.
