The Council for Maritime Truck Unions and Associations has advised that all trucks in Otto Wharf should be moved to one lane.
It also urged similar action at Sunrise bustop to address the prevalence of traffic there.
This was contained in a statement to Financial Street by the national organising secretary of the committee, Adeyinka Aroyewun, on Saturday.
“At Sunrise bustop, all the traffic should merge into one lane/side as only the Out-bound lane, Tincan to Mile 2, is motorable. Often, this is the terminal/decision point for tankers.
“At Otto Wharf, the traffic separates; at this point also, trucks are admitted for Tincan Port transaction. There and then arises the need for proper coordination of traffic at these points of intersection,” Aroyewun stated.
He noted that if the advice is followed, it “will take care of periodic release of eligible trucks into the corridor, ensuring due compliance to the lane management and orders.”
On orderliness of the process, the COMTUA official recommended that containerised trucks heading to the ports should maintain the left side of the road.
“Wet cargo trucks/tankers shall maintain the right side on the corridor. The centre shall be kept free for Out- bound trucks or emergencies. The service lane shall be left for other road users, all pre-gate vehicles, or vehicles to other destinations,” he added.
