Vehicular Traffic situation in Lagos Metropolis - Bottlenecks and wayout
Bachelor Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Transportation Science & Technology, grade: 1.0, , course: Transportation Engineering, language: English, abstract: Lagos, a typical example of third world, is faced with the threats and challenges of chaotic vehicular traffic. Contrary to popular belief attributing the situation to inadequate road network, it was found out that over 90% of places in Lagos have access roads. It was also found out that the roads, said to be inadequate have rather been turned for other uses such as indiscriminate parking of abandoned vehicles, street trading and beggars colonies. Added to these is the poor maintenance state with potholes and ditches being the order of the day. The gutters and canals are either not there or are overfilled. Three major road axes were critically studied. Situation photographs were taken, questionnaires administered and analysed. Measurements were also taken. The results were compared with those obtainable from other advanced countries.
