The Lagos State council of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has said it will comply with the directives of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to enforce traffic rules.
Its Chairman, Tajudeen Agbede, said: “From today, our officers on major expressways must always be on standby to assist security agencies with traffic control.
“ The routes are Ikorodu Road – Yaba; Agege Motor Road- Abule Egbe; Iyana Ipaja- Ajegunle (boundary between Lagos and Ogun State); Oshodi- Mile2; Mile2 -Badagry; lyana lpaja- lkotun- lgando. Our officers will work from 6am- 6pm.
“The officers must ensure that all commercial vehicles comply with traffic regulations. They must not drive against traffic (one way).
“Commercial drivers must not obstruct free flow of traffic by waiting to pick passengers or drop passengers on the highways.
“Conductors are not allowed to hang by the door while the vehicles are in motion. They must ensure that commercial vehicles don’t encroach on routes meant for BRT buses.”
