Blue rail project 90 percent ready – Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu says the Blue line rail project is 90 percent ready.

He spoke after inspecting the project and stations at the National Theatre Iganmu, Orile, Suru Alaba, Mile Two, and Marina axis.

After taking a train ride around the project, the governor said the government would complete the Blue and Red Rail lines on schedule.

He said the blue line rail would be running on electric tracks with Electric Motor Vehicle (EMV).

He also warned citizens to keep off the train lines and ensure they don’t walk on them.

Sanwo-Olu said: “This is the first time I am taking you on the blue line to see where we are. The first phase of the Blue line rail project starts from Mile 2 and terminates at Marina. Marina is an elevated station and it stretches out to the outer Marina and terminates where the governor’s residence is. At the end of the station, you could see that the track is broken into two bridges. The backtrack is for parking.

“We are happy that the contractors are working seven days a week. The major aspect, apart from the Marina Station, is a sea crossing from Eko Bridge to join the outer Marina. They would finish it in about three months. And by the time we will be coming back in July, the concrete construction should have been completed.”
