No fewer than 59 passengers in a fully loaded bus belonging to the Bus Rapid Transport scheme sustained varying degrees of injury on Tuesday when the vehicle collided with a Dangote cement truck on Ikorodu Road, Lagos State.

A female passenger, was, however, unlucky as she lost her life in the crash which occurred at the Ogolonto end of the road.

The Director General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, said the accident was caused by the brake failure of the truck, which was loaded with cement.

He advised motorists to drive within the approved speed limit.

The MD/CEO of LagFerry however implores residents of Lagos State to patronise the waterways as alternative means of transportation considering the fact that our waterways are free from gridlock.

He explained the efforts made by the Governor to ensure the security and welfare of all Lagosians, which subsequently led this administration to vigorously pursue the attainment of intermodal systems of transportation, including optimal usage of our waterways.

He advises Lagosians to take effective advantage of water transportation to help decongest the road traffic, while assuring commuters of their safety on the waterways in the hands of well trained professionals offering customer-centric services.

Lagos state government has made huge investments in water transportation infrastructures. He added.

The first pillar of the strategic policy drive is seamless integrated systems of Transportation and Traffic Management as espoused in the THEMES agenda of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

To this effect, Lagos Ferry Services acquired Ultra Modern 60 seaters and 40 seaters Passenger Boats and 120 tonnage Cargo Barges to ferry Cars and Goods across Lagos Waterways to boost commerce.

It is also a strategic component of Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy.

Water transportation is faster, safer, cheaper and offers pleasant experiences.

We are working assiduously to achieve our collective dream For A Greater Lagos. Ladi Balogun concluded.
