The Lagos State Parking Authority (LASPA) has unfolded plans to create additional Vehicle Parking Lane Markings in selected locations across the state, beginning from November 28, 2022.

The management of LASPA also reiterated that all efforts by the Authority are geared towards improving the parking system of the State.

In a  statement issued by Abayomi Ariba, Public Affairs Officer of Authority, the General Manager of LASPA, Mrs. Adebisi Adelabu,  confirmed on Friday that the vehicle parking lane mark exercise will start on Monday November 28, 2022.

Adelabu added that designated streets within Surulere, Ikoyi, Lekki, Obalende, Ikeja and Victoria Island axis of the state will experience this development as the authority is set to improve street parking from 2023.

She said that the Parking Lane Markings will further guide motorists and pedestrians on appropriate parking regulations and spaces, minimise indiscriminate parking, confusion and uncertainty while conveying a range of information to residents on parking procedures within each specified environment.

Adelabu pointed out that the lane markings will also include special consideration for people living with disabilities and signposts for parking directives, among other features.

The General Manager solicited the understanding of residents within the locations who might be affected by any inconvenience the process might cause.

She assured that the government of Lagos State is working 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.

“Recall the Authority had recently unveiled plans to begin full implementation of parking policy in the second quarter of 2023 and has continued to sensitise the public on the need to embrace the parking culture as the Authority is instituting an ideal parking system for all residents,” Ariba wrote in the statement.
