Traffic in and around Lagos ports

The roads surrounding and leading to the town of Apapa, which sits between the two seaports in Lagos, are under lockdown.

The entrances/exits to the town [Ijora and Mile Two] have been barricaded by oil tankers/articulated trucks, thus effectively making Apapa in-accessible, and causing immense inconvenience to the town and its population.

Apapa is a commercial and industrial hub in Lagos. Access to both ports is normally very simple, yet the chaotic gridlock around and beyond Apapa/Lagos ports has affected business operations.

A normal 30-minute drive now takes between 4 to 6 hours due to the gridlock along on this route, thereby making the price of transportation and the cost of doing business extremely high around this area.

If you have any queries regarding vessels approaching Nigerian ports or ports and how they might be affected by these activities, please do not hesitate to contact Budd Indonesia budd-indonesia@budd-pni.com or general.marseille@budd-pni.com.
