Heavy duty vehicles differ from passenger cars in several ways, and these distinctions frequently make them more vulnerable to traffic problems in urban transportation systems. The environmental effects of caravan transit parks in Lokoja, Kogi state, Nigeria, were investigated in this study. The research looks at the environment’s various biophysical elements. Counts of heavy duty vehicles at Lokoja’s and the surrounding areas along roadside parks, Water quality, soil quality, soil use composition, air quality, and noise quality are among the biophysical components studied. As an exploratory study, the researchers used a variety of data analysis tools and approaches, as well as a variety of sampling strategies. The study’s findings were presented in a descriptive manner, and it was discovered that the environmental implications of Lokoja Trailer Transit Park are both positive and negative. Despite the study’s findings, the Lokoja Trailer Transit Park must be built because it will improve traffic control in the study area.
