Ogun State government, on Thursday, said that it will soon begin construction of bus stations for the take-off of the Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Mass Transit scheme along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway axis.

The stations are to be sited within the Mowe, Ibafo, Arepo, and Berger axes of the ever-busy expressway.

This was disclosed by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dairo Olugbenga while speaking on a radio programme in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Thursday.

According to him, the construction will commence in earnest, as necessary implementation frameworks have been put in place, even as he urged the people to lend their support to the state government towards the successful construction activities in those areas.

“I want to use this medium to plead with our people for their support, as this is another integral part of development geared towards easing the movement of people and goods in Ogun State, which will serve as a respite to environmental pollution by reducing emissions and promoting a cleaner and safer environment in the state”, he said.

Dairo noted that the CNG-powered mass transit buses would be deployed to the corridor for cheaper and safe movement in advance of the construction of the bus stations.

“We are going to formalise transport operation, in that, whoever is going into it must have between 10 to 30 buses under him.

“Current operators will be encouraged to coalesce into cooperatives. This will aid proper management and monitoring of the movement of goods and people in the state.

“Aside from this, there is price control. This administration is further working on providing affordable transportation for the good people of Ogun State”, the commissioner added.
