Written by Broad Admin on September 14, 2022
The Lagos State Government (LASG) has served a seven-day ‘Removal Order’ notice to owners/drivers of trucks, tankers and trailers illegally parked under the Costain Bridge to Iganmu Area of the state.
The state government gave the ‘Removal Order’ to those affected due to the level of degradation on the infrastructure in that axis prompting a clean-up exercise.
This was made known by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Mr Sola Giwa, who led officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) to serve the notice to the owners of the trucks in the area on Tuesday in Lagos.
Giwa said that those equally affected by the notice include owners and occupiers of illegal structures, shanties, kiosks and containerised shops under the Costain Bridge down to Iganmu axis.
Giwa revealed that the notice was coming after several days of inspection ahead of a general clean-up of the area by some of the officials of the Lagos State Government.
He said, “It is an eyesore seeing the level of degradation of our roads by the activities of the illegal squatters.
“The state government is doing the clean up because the so called miscreants and hoodlums freely smoke and sell india hemp under the bridge.’’
