PROJECT SUMMARY
Project start: Jun 2018
Project completion: Oct 2018
Sectors: Maritime
Project location: Lagos, Nigeria

The traffic gridlock in and around Apapa had become a
lingering menace, affecting the Lagos ports and leaving
its associated road network in deplorable conditions.
CARES was commissioned by AP Moller Capital to
conduct a Pre-Feasibility Study of Traffic Decongestion
for Apapa and Tin Can Island Ports and its
surroundings.
As part of the study, a site reconnaissance was conducted
alongside multi-stakeholder consultations. A desk-based
review of applicable historical documents; Lagos state
master plans; cargo volumes; navigational charts; and site
photographs was also conducted. Questionnaires were
designed to collate information from various classes of
respondents.
A number of key issues were identified and assessed such
as, the underlying causes of the lingering traffic congestion;
the major bottlenecks on the routes leading to the Lagos
ports; and current and prospective initiatives proffered by
the Federal Government to alleviate the gridlock.
On conclusion of our study, a series of medium to longterm
decongestion recommendations were identified and
presented to the client for careful consideration. A financial
analysis of associated costs for each recommendation was
also undertaken and included in our study.
