Lagos | Lagos Cable Transit Project | Transit | Approved



Project Sector: Transport
Project Subsector: Terrestrial
Project Value: USD 275
Project Presenter: Captain Dapo Olumide & Fernando Balderrama, African Development Bank

Quote:
Lagos is a growing megacity with over 16 million people today. A city of such proportions needs an efficient mass transport system that caters to transit needs. However, the existing roadway infrastructure, in which current mass transport options rely, is heavily overcrowded. Lagosians spend up to 6 hours of their work day commuting in heavy traffic. Plans have been elaborated by Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) to improve Lagos mass trasportation by developing Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Light Rail Transit and Monorail transit lines. Although the BRT has been implemented, the sytem’s capacity is 200,000 people. And with recurrent delays in the implementation of the Light Rail/Monorail transit systems, commuter demand is left unmet.

Cable Propelled Transit (CPT) systems provide a swift, modern and sustainable answer to Lagos’ needs for mass transportation as it: i) avoids resettlement issues (which in a city of 20,000-25,000 people per square kilometer can be substantial); ii) can be adapted to the local context (e.g. water crossing without need to build bridges); iii) is environmentally friendly; iv) is easily expandable; and v) represents proven technology (9,715 Projects developed in 85 countries). Acting as MLA in this US$ 280 million transaction, the Bank expects to raise up to $140 million in additional financing from DFIs and commercial lenders. Operational within 18 months of financial close, the Project stands to impact the lives of up to 350,000 daily commuters through 10 km of Tricable Ropeway Technology, reducing commuting times from 2 to 3 hours to 15 minutes.

Appointed Lenders’ Technical Advisor in Nigerian cable transit project
The Lagos Cable Transit Project is an African first. The project involves the construction of three Cable Propelled Transit (CPT) lines for mass transit which will link Lagos Island with Lagos Mainland. It will also link residential and business areas of the city within Nigeria’s commercial capital.

The implementation of the CPT lines is intended to replicate the success of similar CPT lines in Caracas, Venezuela and Medellin, Colombia and if successful, could serve as a model for implementation of similar systems in other congested African cities.

The African Development Bank (AfDB) and other lenders were approached by Trico Capital Nigeria Limited (a Nigerian project developer and financial adviser) and Stonehedge Investments Limited to participate in the financing of the Lagos Cable Transit Project.

Aurecon has been appointed Lenders’ Technical Advisor by the AfDB to provide ongoing advice and to support the lenders’ due diligence before and after financial closure. Our expertise, understanding of the growing cable transit industry, a strong African-based team and robust methodology led to Aurecon being awarded this project.

Great new for Nigeria. This is the system in Medellin, the precursor of this:

MetroCable Medellin:


Lineas K (2 km) y J (2,7 km) -Transporte masivo:

















Linea L (4,5 km) -Turistico- Este conecta a un parque ecologico en las montanyas de Medellin. Es una excelente iniciativa porque conecta directamente desde el metro y en cuestión de 15 minutos nos lleva a un hermoso paraje natural que nos permite desconectarnos de ajetreo citadino:

i wonder if people with fear of heights will like to ride this form of transport. If this is completed along with the other stuff, lagosians will have lots of transport options.

I am a fan of technology, but i a city of 13 million people in dire need to transportation solutions, I am unsure cable transport can really help solve Mass transit problems in Lagos. Fashola needs to concentrate on the Lagos Metro rail system. This might work in certain segments of Lagos, possibly.

LMFAAOO!!!





I think it's great. The increase of transport options is nice and this will add an interesting dynamic to life in Lagos. I see it as a more of a liesure option for traveling, something you would ride on vacation or on a date or family visit, but if we can take those people off the roads and into the sky more power to the initiative, that alone will be beneficial.


we already see how popular the cable at obudu is. A good point was raise about Nigerian fear of heights lol. It seems funny but it's very real and true, that's why i think it will be a nice addition to lagos but it's popularity for everyday use is questionable. i doubt there will be lines for it's use.

The cables are used mostly by people in the poorest neighborhoods, which used to be marginalized by the sheer time it took them to descend from the hills.. It used to take them 2 hours, now it takes 20 minutes.. The cabe cars connect directly to metro trasference stations, where they can hop on the subway and go anywhere in town

This is what the transferrence station looks like. Lower part: metro, upper part: cable car.



And this is the future BRT/Metro transference station:



First public stairs in the poor neighborhoods:





This is the whole system (50km). I think Medellin has developed a very good transport model for developing countries:

I only hope, the one in Lagos, would be as beautiful as that.

Nigeria and colombia can actually benefit one another a lot. we are Similar, in many ways, and both countries have the same climate..... Nigeria could look at Colombia or Malaysia, for tropically resistant buildings and infrastructure.

Seen this a while back. At least it's practical. However, I doubt that it can address the transportation problem in any significant way. Lagos needs mass transit initiatives.
