Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, has told the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to stay away from main streets of the state. The Governor made this known on Tuesday at the commissioning of pedestrian bridges, laybys and slip road at Ojodu Berger.

He said the FRSC, a federal government agency, should limit its operations to the fringes and highways and stay clear from the main streets of the state.

Mr Ambode stated that investigations have shown that the FRSC contributes to traffic gridlock in some areas of the state.

According to him, his administration was working hard to solve the problem of traffic gridlocks in the state.

“We advise the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to stay on the fringes and highways and not on the main streets of Lagos.

“It has become evident that these agencies contribute to the traffic challenges on our roads,” the Governor disclosed at the event.

He said further that, “What we set out to achieve with this project was to ensure smooth flow of traffic along the expressway, safeguard the lives of our people who had to run across the expressway and project the image of a truly global city to our visitors.
