After all the back and forth, it seems the Lagos State Government is set to concentrate on the 10year old Lagos Blue Rail Line. The Lagos State Government said on Sunday the first phase of its 27-kilometre blue line rail system would be test-run by December next year.

The first phase of the project covers Mile 2 to Orile-Iganmu.

The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotoso, who led nine other members of the state’s Executive Council, disclosed at a press briefing to commemorate the 200 days of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration.

The initial cost of the blue line was put at $1.2 billion and it started in 2009 during the Babatunde Fashola’s administration

The project was initiated as part of measures to address the perennial road congestion in the state.

Omotosho said some international companies have expressed interest in partnering the state government in the project, but failed to mention the true identities of the companies.

He added that eight multi-national construction firms were mobilised to carry out a massive repair on critical highways in what was christened “Operation 116.”

The commissioner said: “This was followed by extensive palliative and maintenance works, especially by the Public Works Corporation, which has rehabilitated hundreds of roads and cleared several drainage channels in various parts of the state

“This was taken further with the flag-off of the reconstruction and upgrading of strategic roads in Ikorodu. The project comprises 6.05 kilometres Phase One Road from Itamaga to Ewu Elepe town; 7.8 kilometres Owutu-Agric-Ishawo Road Phase One and Bola Tinubu-Igbogbo-Imota Road.

“Interestingly, the Victoria Island, Lekki Traffic Circulation project on Oniru axis was also flagged-off the same day. The project, being undertaken by Lagos State Government and Access Bank under a Public Infrastructure Improvement Partnership arrangement, would ease traffic considerably around Victoria Island, Oniru and Lekki axis.”

To strengthen the drive for a multimodal transport system, he said the governor also launched the Uber Boat water transportation service.
