Gov Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Monday took to his social media pages to announce the latest delivery of the 3 new EMU trains in Lagos.

According to him, the trains have been cleared at the ports and have been moved to the National Theatre station where they have been lifted onto the elevated rail tracks en route to Marina axis.

In his words, he wrote…

Dear Lagos,

We have taken delivery of two new train sets for the blue line rail.

These passenger trains have been cleared at the port of entry, and have been moved to the National Theatre station where they have been lifted onto the elevated rail tracks.

I am indeed glad to inform the good people of Lagos that with the arrival of these train sets, we’re on course with our plans to change the face of the rail transport system in Lagos State.

It will be recalled that in Dec 2022, the governor with members of his cabinet went on a test ride drive from the National Theatre Station, Iganmu, to Marina, on Lagos Island, signaling the readiness of the 27km intra-city rail system.

It is expected that the official opening will be in January 2023 by President Muhammadu Buhari when the second phase covering Mile 2 to Okokomaiko will commence.

The Blue Rail mass transit line is a 27km project spanning Marina, Iganmu, Mile 2, Alaba and Okokomaiko.

Five stations have been completed, with 13km of the rail tracks laid in the first phase. This first phase will transport 250,000 passengers daily and, when completed, the entire 27km will transport about 500,000 passengers daily. Each train comprises four coaches and each coach can take up to 180 passengers conveniently.

The three new coaches are part of the new trains that were ordered from China and will be integrated into the Lagos Light Rail Project.
