The Oshodi-Abule-Egba Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor and the Terminal 2 of the Oshodi multi-level terminal and interchange will begin operation next week, The Nation learnt on Thursday.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will inaugurate the project on Tuesday, Commissioner for Transportation Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, confirmed this. He said the action would end the speculation that the government had abandoned the project.
Managing Director of Planet Projects Mr Biodun Otunola, whose firm handled the project, said 80 High Capacity Vehicles (HCVs), which would be deployed in the corridor, had been stacked at the multi-level terminal, waiting for the roll out.
Otunola, who was represented by the Facility Manager Mr Yomi Solaja, led The Nation on tour of the three terminals which are now ready for activation.
Otunola, who said the firm had projected 15,000-passenger traffic daily, in the first three months, explained that when it peaks, the traffic will move to 25,000.
