A man has given details of how commercial bus drivers have taken over the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor in the PWD area of Lagos State, giving the drivers of the high capacity buses hell on the lane that leads to Ikeja.
He urged the authorities of the state government to do something about it and act fast in order to reduce the traffic snarl and the attendant hours spent by commuters along the corridor.
The man, whose Twitter handle is @AderounmuJimoh, wrote a tweet on the situation, apparently reacting after the incessant traffic bottleneck being experienced on the corridor almost everyday.

According to him, the BRT corridor from Bolade Oshodi to PWD is devoid of any problems as the long buses move on the corridor without any hitch, but from the PWD end, the corridor has been taken over by the commercial bus drivers who drop and pick passengers there.
This, he said, is giving the BRT bus drivers a lot of problems before they could get to Ikeja as the activities of commercial bus drivers are creating unnecessary logjam on a corridor that is supposed to be free for the BRT to pass.
