CONTENT OF THE LESSON
A MOTOR PARK
A motor park is a place or building reserved for parking cars.
My first visiting to Lagos State BRT motor park in Oshodi is amazing and orderly from what parks in Oshodi use to be.
The motor park is the biggest, world class bus terminal and one of its kind in Lagos and Nigeria.
It is one of the newest infrastructural development in Lagos to boost the transportation sector.
The motor park is not just a bus terminal. It has become the newest tourist destination in Lagos.
When every part of the facility opens fully, it will become a tourist hub. It will feature recreational and entertainment centres. It will have its museum, art gallery, fast foods, lounge, mall, hotel and tech hubs.
The purpose of the motor park is to create a central business district for road transportation in Lagos. It will also put Lagos at the forefront of transportation development in Africa.
The facility is highly secure. It has 24-hour security personnel and CCTV cameras installed in strategic areas of the terminal.
