It is vaguely relevant given that there was to be a deal between Toronto and Lagos for the use of old TTC metro cars.

The logo resembles a snail -- hopefully the trains will run faster...

What lacks on the map of course is the already existing urban rail services. There's very little information about timetable or extension of the network.

But this little video shows that it at least can reach quite decent speeds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_Rcj3UPXG4

Well, no Trains from Canada after all, so instead, Lagos will be getting trains from China. The People's Republic of China, that is.

All of the old H5 and H6 Toronto Subway cars that were initially planned for refurbishment for use in the Lagos Rail Mass Transit System will be scrapped, because of technical and financial reasons. The Lagos Rail Mass Transit System will instead use EMUs from the People's Republic of China instead.

So they shipped the old Toronto cars all the way to Lagos to end up being scrapped?

Nope, still stored in the United States. The old H5 and H6 cars are being scrapped because the initial deal was cancelled.

Lagos Rail Mass Transit System


Lagos rail mass transit system project

The first two lines of the urban rail project are estimated to cost $1.4bn. The Red line will be 30km long, and will run between Marina and Agbado. The Blue line will be 27km long, connecting Okokomaiko to Marina.

"LAMATA has proposed seven lines in the Lagos network."
The Blue line will cost $1.2bn and will be funded entirely by the Lagos State Government (LSG). In May 2012, the Lagos government commenced negotiations with potential investors for the operation and maintenance of the line.

The 30km-long Red line will use the existing Nigeria Railway Corporation corridor. It will be constructed through a concession arrangement. Discussions with a preferred bidder for construction of the Red line are ongoing.

The concession contract will be for the operation and maintenance of the lines for a 25-year period. The scope of work for the concessionaire will also include design and construction of the infrastructure associated with operation and maintenance of the lines.

The transaction adviser for the Red line is Dar Al-Handasah. CPCS Transcom is the transaction adviser for the Blue line. The two transaction advisers have conducted feasibility studies and conceptual design work for their respective lines.

Red Line: Marina to Iddo

The Red line begins as a double line at Marina and runs through Ebute Ero ending at Iddo. It then runs northwards via a reverse curve to reach Ebute Metta. The line runs straight to Yaba, Mushin and Oshodi before reaching Ikeja. At the Ikeja station, the Red line is linked to the line from the international and domestic airport terminal. From Ikeja, a single line will run to the airport terminals. The Red line moves as a double line further northwards from Ikeja to pass through Agege, Iju and finally reaches Agbado.

"CCECC won the construction contract for the Blue line. "
The passenger railway service run by Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) from the north will terminate at the Agbado interchange. Passengers travelling to Marina using NRC services will change train at Agbado and continue their journey on the Red line. Some of the Red line section from Agbado will run on NRC corridor tracks.

The Blue line starts at Marina station and runs along Ebute Ero and Iddo stations ¬- same as the Red line. From Iddo, the Blue line running on an elevated platform moves along the National Theatre station and makes a descent at Iganmu to join the expanded Lagos-Badagry Expressway, an expansion conceived to ease link between Nigeria and neighbouring West African states, Alaba, Mile 2, Festac, Alakija, Trade Fair station, Volkswagen station, LASU and finally reaches the Okokomaiko station where it ends. One of the two bridges being built for the Blue line is at Mile 2.

Island-style platforms

The Red and Blue lines will have 13 stations each. Three stations in the south end of the Red line will be shared with the Blue line. The two lines will therefore comprise 23 stations in total.

The stations will have island-style platforms and commuter payment systems. Public address and electronic information screens will be installed in each station. The Ebute Ero station will also have an escalator.

A number of rail crossings with elevated road structures will be built along the lines. A total of 35 pedestrian bridges will be constructed over the Nigerian Railway Corridor. Cable ducts and walkways, in addition to drainage system with two walls will be built along different sections of the lines.

Between Marina and Iddo stations, a combined 5km viaduct rail over road and cable stay bridge will be built, linking the Red and Blue lines.

Other infrastructure to be built as part of the project include stations; signalling, control and communications (SC&C) systems; supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems; depot and workshop facilities; an operations control centre and a training facility for train drivers.
