The first phase of the ongoing construction of 27-kilometer Rail Mass Transit (LRMT) Blue Line project from Marina to Okokomaiko will be ready in 2022.

This came as the government added that it has reinvigorated the environmental sector in the last year. This has restored the mandate of agencies and making the state cleaner.

The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde and Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Mr. Tunji Bello, made these assertions on Wednesday, during the 2020 ministerial briefing as part of activities to commemorate the first year in office of Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the Governor of Lagos State.

According to Oladeinde, “the blue and red lines rail projects remain the flagship transport developments of Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration.





“The Lagos Rail Mass Transit (LRMT) Blue Line project is a 27-kilometre rail project from Marina to Okokomaiko.

“The state is currently evaluating bids submitted by investors for four other rail lines.

“The four lines are 68-kilometre Green Line from Marina to Lekki Free Zone, 60-kilometre Purple Line from Redemption Camp to Ojo, 34-kilometre Yellow Line from Otta to National Theatre and 48- kilometre Orange Line from Ikeja to Agbowa.”
