The Lagos State Government through its Parking Authority (LASPA) has concluded plans to create additional vehicle parking lane markings in selected locations across the state, in order to structure and improve parking systems within Lagos.
These additional parking lanes to aid structured parking would be created on designated streets within Surulere, Ikoyi, Lekki, Obalende, Ikeja, and Victoria Island axis of the state.
According to the government, these locations would experience this development beginning from Monday, 28th November.
The General Manager, LASPA, Adebisi Adelabu, who disclosed this development through a statement released by the Public Affairs Officer for the agency, Abayomi Ariba, yesterday, stressed that 2023, more locations would be done to end indiscriminate parking in the state.
Adelabu explained that the parking lane markings would guide motorists and pedestrians on appropriate parking regulations and spaces allocated by the government.
She added that it would minimize indiscriminate parking, confusion, and uncertainty while conveying a range of information to residents on parking procedures within each specified environment.
According to her, the lane markings will also include special consideration for people living with disabilities and signposts for parking directives, among other features.
The General Manager, however, solicited the understanding of residents within the locations who might be affected by any inconvenience the process might cause across these locations.
Adelabu assured that the government is working rigorously in regulating and improving the parking culture as part of its Traffic Management and Transportation Agenda to ensure parking is convenient, safe, and secure across the state.
Recall the Authority had recently unveiled plans to begin full implementation of parking policy in the second quarter of Y2023 and has continued to sensitise the public on the need to embrace the parking culture as the Authority is instituting an ideal parking system for all residents.
