NPA says port access roads rehabilitation begins soon

The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has said the rehabilitation of the access road around the Tin-can Island port would soon begin.
Mr Musa Iliya, an Assistant General Manager, Public Affairs, in an interview in Lagos, said that the NPA was very concerned about the state of the road.

He said it was obvious that the NPA could not look away from the fact that the bad condition of the road was affecting the port business.
“The contract to rehabilitate the road around the port corridors at Tin-can Island will be awarded soon.
“The NPA feels very concerned about the state of the road and will do everything possible to ensure that movement in and out of the port is without hitches,” he said.
A licensed customs agent at the port, who preferred to remain anonymous, said the port access road had become a hitch for businesses that have operations to undertake in the port.
He was indifferent to the news that the NPA would soon begin the road rehabilitation because according to him the information had become stale news.
The condition of the road around the Tin-can Island port area has gone deplorable, making it nearly impassable for vehicles due to the large craters on several portions.
