The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has commenced cement deliveries from Ewekoro, Ogun State to Ibadan, Oyo State for Lafarge Cement Company Plc.


Presently, about 750t of cement are being transported per week in the resumption of freight haulage, according to the Director of Public Relations, David Ndakostu.



He said “this is in addition to the 450t per week being moved by NRC from Ewekoro to Ijoko and Agege.   It is believed that the movement of cement from Ewekoro to Ibadan by rail will significantly reduce the traffic gridlock on the Lagos-Ibadan road caused by heavy articulated vehicles and also ease the stress faced by commuters’’.
