Special Adviser to Governor Akinwumi Ambode on Central Business District (CBD), Agboola Dabiri made the disclosure on Wednesday.
“You must have observed that the traffic within Apongbon from Broad Street has been terrible and if you are not careful, from beginning of Apongbon to Surulere can take like five hours,” he said.
He said Apongbon towards Broad Street (formerly Western Avenue) would be cordoned off such that commercial buses would find it difficult to pick and drop passengers.
“Our ultimate target is to make Broad Street and Apongbon zero tolerant to yellow buses,” he said.
On street trading, he said: “As of today, we have sealed under the bridge with barb wires; we have enclosed the traders under the bridge within the barb wires so as to prevent them from moving.
“Each day, millions of people visit Lagos Island for trading, we will do our best to maintain best standard in the CBD.”
