Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has promised a wave of completed projects across the state as the year 2023 reaches its final two months.
The Governor made this known today at the completion and commissioning of the Oyingbo bridge, a feat the Governor described as;
a significant step in our journey towards completing and opening the Lagos Red Line Rail Project.
The Oyingbo Bridge is a remarkable T-shaped structure, stretching 717 meters in length. It is expected to be a connector of key areas of Lagos and enhance accessibility and safety, the Governor said.
This bridge links Murtala Muhammed Way to Apapa Road, offering access to Costain, Iganmu Industrial Area, Lagos Badagry Expressway, Herbert Macaulay Way, Third Mainland Bridge, Otto, Carter Bridge, and Ijora.
Not only does the Oyingbo Bridge improve traffic flow, but it also enhances safety by separating vehicular/pedestrian traffic from rail traffic, reducing accidents at railway level crossings.
From infrastructure to education, we’re determined to keep Lagos moving forward, and these projects commissioned are just the beginning.
Your support and patience are greatly appreciated.
