Lagos traffic talk: Why is Ajah traffic so bad?
We all know how bad Lagos traffic can be. However, the traffic seems to be worst in the Ajah area. This terrible traffic situation has been going on for years.
Even though the Jubilee bridge was constructed to ease the situation, it has brought little or no succour for commuters and residents in the area.
It is not unusual to hear people spend up to 3 hours from Victoria Island to Ajah. This commmute under normal conditions should not last more than 45 minutes.
Just recently commuters came on Twitter to complain about the Ajah traffic and we gathered some of the interesting comments.
No alternative routes

A tip and some good points
The real problem is the rate at which people have moved into ajah axis in the last 2yrs its extremely high if I am not ajah's population in the last 2yrs has grown to like 75% most of us who reside in ajah in 2016/17 knows these it was never like this.

A message for the realtors
Those realtors selling and leasing properties towards Ajah, please be considerate enough to tell your clients that they'll be facing traffic much worse than that of 3MB.
