Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, has marked the completion of the first phase of the blue line rail project (Marina to Mile 2).

 

The completion ceremony took place at the National Theatre Station, Iganmu, Lagos, on Wednesday.

 

Sanwo-Olu said the COVID 19 pandemic, civil unrests and other incidents led to the shutdown of the project for months.

 

“Lagos, we have done it. As I sat in the beautiful airconditioned coach today, I smiled. A promise that has kept me up at night has finally been completed,” he tweeted.

 

 “The first phase of the blue line metro station running from Mile 2 to Marina has now been completed.”


Sanwo-Olu said the project would be commissioned in January 2023, adding that operations would begin in the same month.

 

For long term sustainability, he said the state has developed an independent power project which supplies electricity for the metro line.
