Cargo delivery moved from Lagos ports to Ogun to stop Apapa Gridlock

The Federal Government has concluded plans to make importers take delivery of their cargoes cleared from Lagos ports at Papalanto in Ogun State via rail lines.

Disclosing this at the just concluded World Maritime day celebration in Lagos, Minister of Transport, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, said government has made provisions for the supply of 100 wagons and 60 locomotives to ease the movement of cargoes out of the ports.

The minister said the new arrangement would reduce the logjam, adding, “The ministry is worried by the time being wasted in the ports and therefore is reviewing policies with a view to improving cargo transportation. With effective rail transportation of goods from the ports to the hinterland, less pressure will be on the roads and goods will get to destinations more secured and at less costs.”
