The multi-level bus terminal is fitted with World-class facility to make travelling Pleasurable. This was a statement released to the press in Lagos on Tuesday by Biodun Otunola, chief Executive officer of Planet Project Limited, the company executing the Project.
The President of the Federal of Nigeria Muhammedu Buhari is currently in Lagos to inaugurate the $70 million Project.
Otunola said that with the project done transportation challenge is solved, the government can now face other challenges within the state
“Oshodi transport interchange is to address the traffic, environmental safety and transportation problems around Oshodi and Lagos at large. We discovered that over 76% of the open space in Oshodi is occupied by transport activities,” Otunola says
“As a result of that, we know that the problem here is not just environmental. The problem is transport. If we can solve the transport problem, we can deal with other issues. And because we don’t have enough land around here, hence the concept of having multi-level bus terminal in Oshodi. So, we have to provide a terminal that can handle at least one million people every day. Not in the immediate, but we believe that when this terminal opens, we should be able to handle 300,000.
“Here, we have three terminals. Terminal one is for inter-city transportation. So, if you are travelling to any part of Nigeria, including West Africa, you will be able to get the bus here and the terminal will run for 24 hours. The whole terminal has been designed to have all world-class facilities.
“Terminal two is to serve Lagos west and all the people going towards FESTAC, Mile 2, Abule Egba, Oshodi, Isolo and Ayobo. Terminal three will also serve people going to Lagos east and Lagos Island, Ojota, Ikorodu, Marina, Obalende, including Berger.
“Bus operation will start from terminal three on May 2.”
