Lagos State, the commercial nerve-center of the nation has over the years been confronted with the problem of rapid growing human and vehicular traffic congestion. This problem is largely caused by the rate of migration of people into Lagos State. Infact recent statistics has it that over 15000 people enter Lagos on a daily basis. This figure results to an estimated six million people that move around Lagos metropoly on a daily basis. This geometric increase in population of people in Lagos State as against a rather static infrastructure (road network) development has resulted to a multiplicity of transportation problems in several parts of Lagos State one of which is Amuwo-odofin. Amuwo-odofin with estimated population of over 2 million is not just affected by transportation problem but also by poor transportation induced problems such as poverty and retarded economic development. Fortunately, Amuwo-odofin as well as majority of Lagos suburbs is blessed with one viable source of economic development especially in the transportation sector; water. This thesis therefore is intended to examine the present situation of inland water transportation system in Lagos State (with special focus on Amuwo-odofin town) as it relates terminals, and there after proffer architectural design solutions to the zoning and circulation problems associated with them. Chapter one is the introduction of the topic in a broad spectrum, Chapter two goes on to explain the theoretical framework of the proposed scheme, with emphasis on its need and viability. Chapter three focuses on port terminal planning principles. Chapter four will deal on Site study which includes climatic and topographical analysis of the proposed site for the project will be treated . in chapter five, the design synthesis and concept will be treated.
