Since Monday, Lagos commuters spend more time on road due to traffic gridlock. A journey of two hours now take about four hours as businessmen lament the havoc the gridlock had wrecked on them.
Silverbird Television however observed that the traffic, which spread from Ikorodu Road to Third Mainland Bridge was caused by influx of articulated vehicles into Lagos State for the coming Ed-el Kabir Festival.
The articulated vehicles had conveyed rams and cattle to the metropolis for sales during the Ed-el Kabir with most of them parked along Funsho Williams Avenue, Surulere Area of the state.
Some of the officers of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency, LASTMA who spoke to Silverbird Television confirmed that the articulated vehicle contributed to the heavy traffic but urged commuters to also obey all traffic rules.
