This was made known by CCECC through its twitter handle, the track laying was said to be completed on March 28th.

It will be recalled that the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo performed the groundbreaking ceremony for the standard gauge railway on March 7, 2017.

In January, Rotimi Amaechi, the minister of transportation, had said the April deadline fixed for the completion of the standard gauge rail line was no longer feasible.

“Today (Monday), Oyo state governor is accompanying us on the monthly inspection of work on the Lagos-Ibadan rail line. We are going the whole nine yards,” he said.

“From the mega station in Ebute Metta to Apapa and all the way to Ibadan. A large chunk of this rail line is in Oyo State.

“Looking at the state of work in Apapa, completing the project in April doesn’t seem feasible, especially the extension of the rail line to the seaport.”

Amaechi also blamed the COVID-19 outbreak for slowing down the work pace as contractors were stuck in China after a lockdown ordered by the Chinese government.

In November 2019, the federal government launched a free train service to test the work done.

The rail service between the two cities is expected to have 10 stations from 2020, and the trains will operate on a maximum speed of 150 km/h.
