Lagos' Need for More Space

Lagos is billed to become Africa's largest city by 2015 when it's population will overcome that of Cairo's. I was in Cairo last year and I know how big and organised that city looks compared to Lagos. Its streets are wider and cleaner even with the amount of people that traverse it daily.

So if one is not careful, this image of a cart pusher struggling for right of way with a biker and a car along the supposed highbrow Awolowo Road, Ikoyi will only worsen causing untold hardship to road users and businesses.  

And eventually, there'll be more people standing in the buses just so that they can get to their destinations.
