Out With the Old - Nigeria's Apapa Rail Station to Get Makeover

The idea is to pull down the existing structures, and expand the station towards the seaport for easy access to ferry goods from the sea to the rail line and then to the town, according to Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi. Container trucks and tankers caused a major gridlock along the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway which has led the government to look for alternatives to ease traffic congestion on major highways.

The gridlock is being caused by container trucks and tankers operating around the port.
