Lagos governor says first light rail project to be completed by Dec 2016

Quote:
Nigeria hopes the first phase of a light railway aimed at easing traffic jams in the commercial hub Lagos will be ready within 13 months, and is inviting bidders for an expansion, Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode said on Thursday.

China's state-owned China Civil Engineering Construction Corp (CCECC) began work on the $2.5 billion scheme in 2010, hoping to open the line in 2011, but the project has suffered delays that are typical in a country plagued by graft and mismanagement.

The railway is part of efforts to ease traffic congestion in the port city, where some of the 21 million residents get up as early as 4:30 a.m. to make it into their offices by 9:30.

In particular, it can take as much as four hours to cross the single bridge to the Victoria Island business district in the morning, though the island will not be served directly by the new line.

Asked about a start date for the line, Ambode told Reuters: "By December 2016, that should be delivered."

$200m World Bank loan is for execution of Lagos blue line – Minister

The Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Lai Mohammed, said on Thursday that the $200 million World Bank loan recently approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) for Lagos State was to enable it complete the long delayed Lagos light rail (blue line) project running on the Lagos-Badagry corridor. Former Governor Babatunde Fashola, the current minister of power, works and housing, in 2008, initiated the rail line, but work started in 2009, projected to be completed in 2011. But the project suffered delays as the government kept shifting the completion dates from 2011 to 2012, to 2014, until it left office in 2015, blaming the failure to deliver the project on paucity of funds. But speaking during a courtesy call on Governor Akinwunmi Ambode at the Lagos House, Ikeja, on Thursday, Mohammed said the loan would help Lagos complete the project. “Only recently we passed in the Federal Executive Council, a $200 million loan application for Lagos State to complete the blue line rail. This is a project that had been stalled for political reasons and Governor Ambode is pushing it,” the minister said. It would be recalled that at a meeting with the business community in Lagos last week, Ambode pledged to complete the first phase of the rail – from Mile 2 to CMS, by December this year.

Infrastructure Bank leads $2bn funding for Lagos rail project


THE Infrastructure Bank Plc is to provide funds for the proposed $2 billion Lagos Red Line Rail Project that will commute two million passengers daily from Alagbado to Marina.

Hakeem Olopade, the bank’s executive director (Projects), disclosed this in Lagos over the weekend at the ongoing 3rd Economic Commission of West Africa States (ECOWAS) Investment Forum.

The Infrastructure Bank Plc is the chief promoter and financier of the rail project.

The funds, to be coordinated by the bank, will be sourced from the local and international markets.

Olopade said that the project had been in conception since five years ago and would be implemented by Marina Express Consortium to ease transportation in populated areas of Lagos.

According to him, the Red Line Rail project would stretch 37 kilometres with 36 pedestrian walkover bridges to end at the Marina.

Olopade said that that the Red Line and the ongoing Blue Line Rail projects would converge on a “signature bridge” to link the Mainland to the Marina. He said that the bridge would cost $200 million.

Olopade said that the Red Line Rail project might be extended to Ogun State in the future.

He said that the Red Line Rail project would be a two- type infrastructure, which would cost one billion dollars each.

The executive director said that the bank, in implementing the project, would be responsible for the fixed infrastructure as it would be responsible for the fixed infrastructure as well as the operation and maintenance.

Olopade said that the moving infrastructure would have a rail signal communication, among others.

Olopade said that one of the core objectives of the Red Line project was to provide a world-class rail system.

He said that the bank would also ensure that there was constant improvement in the area of service delivery to the people of Lagos State.

The bank executive identified skill and training as paramount to the project and said that the bank was assembling a global team to implement the project.

“We also want to make sure that as we provide training and skill services, there is a clear system of transfer programme to ensure that within a short time, the rail would be run by Nigerians for Nigerians.

“We also have a corporate social responsibility, as core driver of the project, by creating one thousand direct jobs apart from the indirect jobs that would also be provided on the corridors,” he said.

Olopade said that there would be signal that would be laid on the track corridor for free access to Internet for school children.

“We are also conscious of school passengers and pensioners and there would be aggregate tariff for them to benefit from the rails service.”

He said that the project was part of the World Bank’s sponsored study for transport infrastructure and solution for Lagos.

The BRT, which is the Bus Rapid Transport, also came out of that study.

“This railway project is part of the integrated mode of transportation from that study.

“There would be seven metro lines and the Red Line and Blue Line are the prototypes that Lagos State has agreed to commission as a starter.

“The Blue Line is already taken by the state. The Red Line is going to be a concession that would be run by the private sector,” Olopade said.

President Buhari, in probably the most significant news of his administration so far has signed a $2.5 billion agreement with China for the development of the Lagos Metro Rail Transit Red Line project.

Red Line To be Monorail

The Lagos State Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Mr. Akinyemi Ashade on Monday disclosed that France and Japanese Governments will be investing the sum of $1 billion in the construction of mono rail project in the State.
Disclosing this in Alausa during a Ministerial press briefing in commemoration of Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode’s first year in office, Ashade explained that the continued increase in the state population had put pressure on the state government to partner other governments in a bid to improve the standard of living in the state.

According to Ashade, both countries had earmarked the funds following the state government’s previous achievements.

He said, “In a bid to expandi its development partnership with the Lagos State Government in urban mass transportation, Japanese International Cooperation Agency, JICA will commit the sum of $1billion to development of a mono rail which will connect Marina to Victoria Island and Ikoyi.”

The Commissioner said the need for the project was the outcome of the preliminary survey on Mass Rapid Transit, MRT system in Lagos metropolis conducted by JICA and Lagos Metropolitan Transport Authority, LAMATA.

I hope by "converge" they mean the two lines will have four tracks running adjacent to each other, not all trains on two tracks.

That's odd, I was thinking "converge" meant that the Red and Blue Lines were going to merge onto the same two tracks on that new "signature bridge" (which I think is going to have just two tracks, one in each direction, rather than four).

CRRC rolls out first metro train for Lagos
Wednesday, July 20, 2016



DALIAN Locomotive and Rolling Stock, a subsidiary of China’s CRRC Corporation, has rolled out the first of 15 trains for the initial phase of the metro network in Nigeria’s largest city Lagos

The stainless-steel-bodied 750V dc third-rail sets for the Blue Line are based on trains supplied for Tianjin metro Line 2 and are the first trains to be built in China for an African metro. Each four-car train is formed of two powered vehicles and two trailers, and has a maximum speed of 100km/h

--The red and blue metrolink lines in st louis converge onto one set of tracks at the Forest Park/DeBalivere station, and there is no issue. Actually it's kind of nice, because for the length of track where they converge the headways between trains is halved, meaning from O'Fallon to Forest Park wait times for a train are rarely more than 10-15 minutes in off-peak times.

Looks more heavy-rail than light-rail.
