This is main gateway into Lagos, the nation’s hub of commercial activities. It is arguably the busiest and most traversed trunk road in Sub-Saharan Africa. It serves unquantifiable number of traffic daily such as heavy duty trucks, commuter buses and other vehicles to and from the Lagos metropolis to every other parts of Nigeria.

Such is the volume of traffic that the slightest hitch or accident soon snowball into serious chaotic traffic jam whose ripple effects if not properly managed as often the case soon degenerates into logjam and snarls that lasts for several man-hours loss.

Road happens to be the most common  mode of transportation in Nigeria and accounts for more than 90 per cent of the sub-sector’s 3 per cent contribution to the Gross Domestic Product, GDP

Road transport activities involve the conveyance of passengers en-masse or in small numbers, the transportation of animals, farm produce and merchandise and the rendering of mobile services clinics, libraries and banks.
