The Lagos State Government will initiate the pilot phase of the Electronic Queuing Management System (EQMS) for the Lekki-Epe Corridor from 4th to 30th September 2023.
The primary goal of the EQMS project is to improve the experience of truck traffic and commuters along the Lekki-Epe corridor.
The State Government is actively collaborating with Call-up Technology Services, a leading transportation management solutions provider, to implement this innovative system by utilising advanced technology, to optimise traffic flow, operational efficiency and road safety.
EQMS is specifically designed to tackle congestion and streamline the movement of goods and services within the Lekki-Epe corridor through intelligent algorithms and cutting-edge technology. It aims to efficiently allocate resources and minimise waiting times for trucks.
The data and insights gained during the Pilot Phase will be crucial in shaping the full-scale implementation of the E-call-up system.
The execution of this advanced solution underscores the State Government’s commitment to revolutionising transportation in Lagos State. This transformation will facilitate economic growth and establish a more sustainable and efficient transportation system.
EQMS is poised to revolutionise truck traffic management by providing real-time insights and actionable data for optimising truck movement within the Lekki-Epe axis.
To ensure the successful integration of truck drivers into the EQMS, the State Government has collaborated with key stakeholders from the transportation and maritime industries. Notable industry leaders, including the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD), and the National Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO).
This collaborative approach will strengthen industry partnerships, enhance safety measures, and ensure the seamless integration of all participants in the transportation ecosystem. The State Government is committed to cooperating with relevant stakeholders and industry players to ensure the widespread adoption and success of the EQMS project.
