Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Chris Agabi, La­gos

The pub­lic car park at the In­ter­na­tional Ter­mi­nal of Mur­tala Muhammed In­ter­na­tional Air­port (MMIA) has been re­lo­cated to a new tem­po­rary park­ing fa­cil­ity lo­cated be­tween the church and the mosque, along the air­port ac­cess road.

The car park, which is about 800 me­ters from the Ter­mi­nal, be­came op­er­a­tional at about 10.00hrs on Sun­day, April 6, 2014.

Yakubu Dati, the spokesman for the avi­A­tion parastals, said the re­lo­ca­tion be­came nec­es­sary to make way for the con­struc­tion of a new In­ter­na­tional Ter­mi­nal, a Five-Star Hos­pi­tal­ity Fa­cil­ity, and an Ul­tra Mod­ern Mul­ti­Storey Car Park at the site for­merly oc­cu­pied by car hire and bus oper­a­tors.

The new car park has 1,000 park­ing bays, 24/7 free shut­tle buses/se­cu­rity sur­veil­lance, 6nos. stan­dard re­strooms, ded­i­cated bus route, 2nos. pedes­trian walk ways, pick-up and drop off zones, among other ameni­ties.

“To min­imise the in­con­ve­nience of hav­ing to walk to the new car par, shut­tle buses are pro­vided to con­vey pas­sen­gers to and from the Ter­mi­nal free of charge” he said.

Ac­cord­ing to him, “the Federal Air­ports Author­ity of Nigeria is mind­ful of some in­con­ve­niences that the on-go­ing con­struc­tion works may cre­ate for pas­sen­gers and other air­port users and hereby ap­peals for pa­tience and un­der­stand­ing dur­ing this pe­riod as it continues in its ef­fort at nec­es­sary up­grades in line with in­ter­na­tional stan­dards.”
