Stumbled upon this in the Eko Atlantic thread. Dunno where it came from.

Right of Way recovery, relocation of services delay Lagos light rail project



railway line

The Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority said on Tuesday that Right of Way recovery and the relocation of services were responsible for the slow pace of work on the Light Rail Project on the ongoing Lagos-Badagry Expressway project.

The LAMATA’s Head of Media and Communications, Mr Kolawole Ojelabi, said in Lagos that the project was stopped for almost three years because of various problems of obstruction on the RoW.

“We have given different completion dates for the project but one of the challenges that we had was that the train was originally to go to the Iddo Railway Terminus but the Railway Act did not allow us to do such.

“Since we could not take the train station to Iddo, we had to change the alignment, and in changing that, there were a lot of obstructions on the way.

“For instance, there is a fertiliser plant around Ijora belonging to the Federal Government; we had to negotiate to use their compound so that we could take away their warehouse. We had to build another warehouse for them.

“Around Ijora too, there was a mosque that we had to demolish and build another one.

“Then moving into the lagoon, there were two major challenges: there was the relocation of gas link, a gas pipe underneath the lagoon, which also took some time.

“We also discovered that there was the wreckage of a ship that was at the bottom of the lagoon, that also had to be removed. These delayed the time line for the delivery of the project.


“From the initial plan of the Lagos State Government, this train ought to have been delivered in 2012 or 2013,’’ he said.

Ojelabi explained that LAMATA lost about three years to the recovery of RoW, adding that the state government had to bear the additional costs, which were not in the initial budget.

This, according to him was to ensure that the structures were solid because rail infrastructure is expected to last a minimum of 100 years.

He said that the blue rail line project was a 27-kilometre project which runs from Okokomaiko to the Marina and is expected to have 13 train stations and the trains are targeted to lift a minimum of 400,000 passengers daily when completed.

Ojelabi explained that the project was divided into three phases, with each phase further divided into three segments.

“The first phase of the project is 95 per cent completed, that is from Mile 2 to the National Theatre.

“The second phase which is from National Theatre to Marina is about 45 per cent completed and massive work is going on there now.


“By the time all the piers are built, particularly those in the lagoon, that is, the superstructure, the project would no longer take time to complete,’’ he said.

Ojelabi said that the scope of work done in phase one included the station buildings and rail tracks, adding that, installation of electricity and communication gadgets were being expected, to make the section functional.

He explained that there were supposed be a total of 13 train stations out of which four have been completed and two others are under construction.

Really smart move. The Chinese seem to excel at starting and completing projects quickly and effectively.

Sinohydro has completed all 24 boreholes for the ground investigation works of the Lagos Light Rail Red Line on 31 Oct 2017.
Lab test of the core sample is expected to be completed within 15 days.

Lamata says on their website that the green line will run from Marina to Lekki International Airport.

http://lamata-ng.com/rail/

Side note the purple line is the only inter-connective line in the system. But its located all the way at the outskirts of the city. In my opinion to make the railway more viable to commuters a second inter-connective line should be proposed. so that you dont have to go all the way to marina to transfer to another line. If i live on the blue line but i work in the northern parts of lagos on the red line i will have to go all the way to marina to then go on the red line which makes no sense.
