“We can’t breathe. We are dying in this axis of Lagos and need the government to come to our rescue.” These were some of the comments by some commuters that spoke with Vanguard Motoring, on Thursday, on the Mile 2-Badagry expressway traffic.
For over a month, the Lagos-Badagry expressway has become a nightmare to commuters and motorists plying the route. The government’s inability to fix potholes which turned to craters and gullies have made the road almost impassable, especially as the rains are here.
For instance, a journey that usually takes between five and 10 minutes from Oluti Bus Stop to Mile 2 now takes an average of five hours, if not a whole day.
