FERMA warns Apapa/Tin Can Island residents against actions that could cause flooding

-

- Advertisment -

Federal Roads Maintenance Agency, FERMA, has warned that illegal structures on canals at the Apapa/Tin Can Island Port could cause flooding.

A representative of the agency, Shakunle Oyekunle, expressed this concern today at the ongoing rehabilitation sites on the Apapa/Tin Can Island Port section of Apapa/Oshodi Expressway.

He said the clumsy illegal structures would block the waterways to cause flooding and constant degeneration of roads.

Oyekunle explained that the agency decided to address the root cause of flooding along the axis due to predictions of heavy rainfall and flooding by the Nigerian Meteorological Agency.

He assured that the surface and underground drainage channels on both carriageways would be cleaned regularly to avert flooding.
