LAGOS MAY 16TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) said it has successfully cleared the decade-long gridlock on the Mile 2-TinCan-Apapa corridor, home to the TinCan and Apapa ports.

In a post on its official X account, the NPA attributed the feat to a collaborative effort involving the Lagos State Government, the Nigerian Navy, the Nigeria Police Force, and with the support of Mr. Gboyega Oyetola, the Minister of Maritime and Blue Economy.

The agency said clearing the gridlock on the road corridor had dramatically reduced the travel time for export containers entering the port from an average of 10 days to less than one hour.

It further said the development has led to enhanced quality control of exports, decreased haulage costs, faster truck turnaround times, and reduced import costs.

Other direct benefits, according to the NPA are improved port security, lowered shipping costs, and enhanced port competitiveness.

The NPA said it is committed to collaborating with stakeholders to maintain this achievement.
