Following the deplorable state of some roads in some parts of Lagos metropolis, members of the Tricycle Riders’ Association of the state have decided to fix some bad portions of the service lane, Iyana Itire Busstop, Apapa-Oshodi Expressway at the weekend.

Mr. Sule Owolabi, a member of the association told The Guardian at the busstop, that they were compelled to embark on the job to make the road passable for their tricycles.

He said their association mandated them (members) plying Lawason to Iyana Itire Busstop to do the job at all cost.

According to him, they normally pay between N1,000 and N2,000 to buy a tricycle load off broken pieces of blocks or stones to pour on the potholes.

“We resolved to do it to make the road passable for us so that we can afford to earn our daily bread by carrying passengers. If the road is bad, we cannot ply it and that will disturb our source of earning income to feed families and ourselves. We cannot wait for the government to do it because we do not know when they will come and do it. Since we are the ones that the bad road affects most, we have to do it,” Awolabi said.
