The Lagos State Parking Authority (LASPA) has revealed plans to create Vehicle Parking Lane Markings in selected streets within Surulere, Ikoyi, Lekki, Ikoyi, Surulere, Ikeja, Obalende among other high vehicular density roads across the State.
The efforts which begin on Monday, November 28, 2022, are geared towards improving the parking system in the state, the Authority said. Speaking on the planned initiative in her Ikeja office on Friday, the LASPA General Manager, Mrs. Adebisi Adelabu, stated that the vehicle parking lane mark exercise is among the initiatives to be rolled out by the agency aimed at improving street parking from 2023.
She listed the areas to be affected to include Surulere, Ikoyi, Lekki, Obalende, Ikeja, and Victoria Island axis of the State, adding that the parking lane marking will minimise indiscriminate parking as it will guide motorists on appropriate parking spaces.
Adelabu noted that the Parking Lane Markings will further guide motorists and pedestrians on appropriate parking regulations and spaces, minimise 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, assuring 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.
