#LagosIbadanRail was flagged off by VP @ProfOsinbajo in March 2017. Track laying commenced 2018; 120+km of the 156km line now completed - tracklaying now approaching Ibadan. Construction has also started at the Ebute-Meta Mega Station in Lagos.

Still on Rail:

Senior Execs of the China Railway Construction Corporation Limited (CRCC) visited the President this afternoon: CRCC Chairman, Chen Fenjian; President, Zhao Dianlong; GM, Overseas Dept, CAO Baogang; President CRCC Int’l Ltd, Mo Wenhe. #RailUPng #AsoVillaToday
JUST IN: “The sum of US$250 million will be invested on a dry port in Ibadan, Oyo State, and it will decongest the ports in Lagos, and speed up clearance of goods by the Customs Service.”—Chairman China Railway Construction Corporation Limited (CRCC), Fenjian Chen, today.
I think I’ve tweeted before about new Dry Port (Inland Container Depot) planned for Ibadan. Somewhere in/around Moniya. Will be sited along #LagosIbadanRail route. Incoming Containers will no longer need to be discharged/processed in Lagos; from Ship to Apapa Port Rail to Ibadan.
The new #LagosIbadanRail Line is going to start inside the Apapa Port Complex (I believe construction between Apapa and Ebute-Metta has already started). Expect updates on that segment soon. Was challenged at some point by Right of Way / Obstruction issues, but now resolved.
The Tour of #LagosIbadanRail by Minister of Transport @ChibuikeAmaechi continues today. The Focus for today is on the section of the Line between Apapa and Ebute Metta.

The Ebute Metta Station will be inside the Railway Compound; the Apapa Station in Area B/Leventis.
Construction of Ebute Metta Station has started. For Apapa Station, demolition of existing buildings on the site of the Station has started. #RailUPng #LagosIbadanRail
Costain is getting a new Bridge, as part of the #LagosIbadanRail project. The old Bridge will be demolished (I’m told it’s too low for the new Train), Construction has already started on the new one.
