The Lekki Deep Sea Port management has created a 153-capacity pre-gate truck park to ensure traffic management control at the port.

The management of the port disclosed this on its official Twitter page on Monday.

It said an integral part of the automated gate system consists of a pre-gate truck park of 2.5 hectares.

It also said the port was collaborating with the Lagos State government and Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) to ensure a full-scope traffic management plan for the Lekki Economic Zone Area.

“The port gates will have optical camera recognition portals to read the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags on the trucks as they arrive at the port,” the port management said.

“It will also contain biometric readers for drivers, gate kiosks to issue pick up and drop off tickets to the drivers, and gate arms to allow access/exit for the truckers.

It added that it would have a Vehicle Booking System and an electronic platform for port users to register their intended visits to the port.

The Lekki Deep Sea Port is the largest in Nigeria and one of the biggest in West Africa.
