Fashola Assures Stakeholders As Historic New Lekki Masterplan Is Unveiled

Quote:
Aug 13, 2008 - Lagos Sate Governor, Mr Babatunde Fashola (SAN) on Wednesday assured developers and stakeholders in the Lekki corridor that the proposed comprehensive master plan for the area would incorporate all developments already included in the approved layout plan for the area.

The Governor who spoke at the public presentation and stakeholders forum on the comprehensive master plan for Lekki sub-region held at the Lagoon Restaurant, Victoria Island, added that the master plan as presented should not be viewed as a project to be awarded but a projection and plan for the future about how the land of the people should be used.

He added that the State Government believes it is a process which everybody should contribute to its making.

In his words: “we have brought it to the open so that the owners of the land, the users of the land, the builders of the land, the architects and town planners can participate in developing the master plan into what the government thinks it should be”.

Governor Fashola informed that the master plan has incorporated the Free Trade Zone, the deep seaport, centre of industrial activities and employment, a new airport, an International Golf Course and Oso Lekki Cultural Festival (seasonal meeting of the Atlantic Ocean and fresh water Lagoon) to attract international tourism and business, two alternative highways to the Lekki- Epe expressway and power plants for the whole sub area among others.

Governor Fashola explained that when the master plan is fully in place, the state would have succeeded in ensuring total remaking of the physical, town planning and urban laws of Lagos State which is currently undergoing reforms.

He declared that from the presentations, it has been revealed that government should now focus more on developments on the Lagoon rather than the Atlantic which hitherto has been the centre of all activities adding that it is safer and calmer to develop the Lagoon.

Explaining that as a popularly elected administration, the government takes care to carry the citizenry along at all times, Governor Fashola recalled that in the last twenty four hours, he has held discussions with many stakeholders including those involved in sand dredging who have through their activities also raised some issues which borders on ecology, safety and coastal challenges facing Lagos.

He added that the future oriented Lekki Master plan has also taken cognizance of such issues in such a way that development lines must be set and such parametres adhered to by practitioners to ensure safety and preservation of the eco system.

Governor Fashola said when completed, it can be categorically asserted that XYZ roads would be in a particular area, insisting that whether it would be a possibility would depend on the willingness of the stakeholders to agree that it is the law that will regulate what happens in the area.

Said he: “In foreign jurisdictions, the town planning laws are part of the curriculum of the children from primary school such that they can predict what will happen in their cities and states at any particular period of time”.

He said the new plan would make any land in the area attractive for real estate investment, such that any would be investor has the confidence that “this people would be developing in the lagoon, I can put an hotel there, not that I have to put an hotel there only to discover later that it is a shanty”.

He informed that adequate provision has also been made for disposal of waste and storm water which has been responsible for devaluing many estates across Lagos and Nigeria.

The Governor reiterated that from the propositions of the consultants, it is clear that what has been developed in Lekki as at today which is only the Western side needs a lot of infrastructure to upgrade and that government is already addressing the upgrading through expansion of the Lekki- Epe Expressway and development of the coastal roads.

Governor Fashola promised that the third part of the upgrade is the provision of the Fourth Mainland Bridge which the present administration committed itself to as an electoral promise which it would redeem.

He also informed that water transportation is also being developed with Badore, Ikorodu, Oworonshoki and the Lagoon serving as the hub which will see the construction of three new ferry terminals and jetties at Badore, Ipakodo and Osborne foreshore in Ikoyi opposite the Dolphin Estate.

He recalled that the need to arrest uncontrolled and unplanned development and growth, to re-order the present and plan for the future has informed the decision of the government to prepare an Infrastructure Master Plan for the Lekki sub- region.

He said although a huge population can and should be an asset, uncontrolled urban sprawl and poor planning , resulting in traffic jams, inadequate waste management , inefficient transportation , regular power outages, congestion, pollution and economic dislocations are some of the challenges being faced in the area.

The Lagos State Governor explained that the Lekki Infrastructure and Land Use Master Plan is a partnership between the Lagos State Government and the primary stakeholders in the sub region aimed at introducing order and functionality into the Lekki Sub- region to rescue the huge investments and the environment from going to waste.

He called for questions, suggestions and constructive criticisms from the members of the public, especially on how the report would affect them, on areas that may have been omitted in the report and on areas that require amendments or further explanation respectively, “not only at this meeting but also through the website designated for the purpose which is www.lagosstategov.ng/web/physical_ planning/lekki_masterplan.com, E-mail-memo@lasg-prppbc.com, assuring that the various contributions would be reflected in the final plan which, he said, would be signed into law after consideration by the State Legislature.

Declaring the Stakeholders Forum open, the Governor, who said he was humbled and grateful for the privilege to be the one to lead Lagosians across the bridge “towards a brighter rewarding future”, expressed the hope that the forum would produce “a Master Plan that will be an investment document for the entire region, the whole of Lagos Mega-City and beyond”.

In his presentation of the master plan, the managing partner of Dar al Handersah, Shair and Partners, Mr. Hathan Abduejabar vividly said the team has taken its time to draw out a master plan which would ensure that the Lekki sub region become a new treasure city that Lagos would be proud of.

In their contributions, the stakeholders committee through its spokesperson, Town Planner M.O Ajayi said that the committee expects the state government to ensure the active participation of the local Governments along with other stakeholders in the implementation of the final approved plan.

He concluded that: “we of the stakeholders’ forum congratulate ourselves for this epoch making achievement and event and invite all of you to join us in the implementation of the plan so that we can have the Lagos of our dreams”.

In his contribution, the Oba of Lagos, HRM Oba Rilwan Akiolu commended the Governor for his far reaching initiatives at developing the Lekki Sub- region and Lagos in general describing him as a man who is determined to succeed and take the State to higher heights.

The Royal father also appealed to the state government to consider the land owners in the scheme of things so that adequate care can be taken of their interest on the land in the corridor when the final master plan is considered.

Also contributing, the Ojomu of Ajiranland, Oba Akinloye appealed to the state government to take the landowners and families along in the development process.

Earlier in his welcome address, Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Town Planner Francisco Abosede explained that the world’s urban population in 2008 is estimated to be 3.3 Billion whilst it is equally projected that it will grow by 48 percent to 4.9 billion by Year 2030.

He added that the resultant effects of rapid urbanization require new infrastructure such as motorable roads, potable water, energy, health facilities and effective communication networks.

Lekki Master Plan
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY



The objective of this report is to provide the conceptual designs for the roads and utilities and primary infrastructure for the Lekki Peninsula based on the updated landuse Master Plan which was presented and discussed with the Ministry of Urban Planning and Physical Development, local authorities and stakeholders. The Lekki Sub-Region comprises a naturally formed peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean East of Lagos City and on Lagos Lagoon. The peninsula is approximately 70 to 80 km long, stretching
from Victoria Island in the west to Refuge Island in the east, with an average width of 10 km. The Lekki Sub-Region includes several Estates, gated residential developments, agricultural farmlands, areas allocated for a Free Trade Zone (FTZ), an airport, and a sea port. The project area, under consideration in this study, is estimated to be about 60,000 hectares excluding the areas allocated for the Lekki Free Trade Zone, Sea Port and International airport. The proposed landuse master plan for the Lekki Sub-region envisages the Lekki Peninsula as a “Blue-Green” Environment City. The unique characteristics of the Atlantic Coast, Lagos Lagoon and the inland natural areas will be protected and enhanced to give Lekki New City the special natural ambience character. Based on the proposed landuse plan, Lekki new city will be divided into 5 linear development zones (excluding the Lekki Free Trade Zone):



• The Lagoon Zone – tourism with mixed uses, commercial and business.

• The North Urban Zone – largely new residential.

• The Natural Park Zone – environmental and nature conservation park.

• The South Urban Zone – existing and new residential with commercial and mixed uses as well as light industry.

• The Atlantic Coastal Zone – mainly tourism and recreational.



In addition, the updated landuse master plan will provide a total built-up area of about 10,380 hectares and can accommodate a residential population of about 3.4 Million persons and non-residential population, such as touristic, hotels, commercial, offices, medical (hospitals and clinics) and industrial, of about 1.9 Million persons.



The report includes a thorough assessment of the existing situation, analysis of all available data and information, proposed transport systems (light rail, water transport and road network) as well as discussions on alternative schemes for the provision of utilities within Lekki New City based on the updated Maser Plan, including recommended alternatives and associated budgetary cost estimates for infrastructure implementation. The report is organized in several sections covering all the sectors of the study namely planning parameters, environmental constraints, roads and transport studies, water supply, wastewater collection and disposal, stormwater management and solid waste management as well as power and telecommunication provision. In brief, the Lekki Corridor is seen as one of the most dynamic growth areas in Lagos State, where it provides an enormous opportunity to satisfy the increasing demands of Lagos. The basis for the preparation of the landuse master plan is presented in the report, including the project area context and location, vision and master plan concept. The proposed systems that are necessary to meet the projected demands on utilities are discussed and can be summarized as follows:



♦ Environmental Policy Framework: Environmental guidelines that should be considered within the development with emphasis on proposed infrastructure systems are presented. These are intended to serve as the basis for the detailed designs of infrastructure systems within each identified development on the Lekki Peninsula.



♦ Water Transport System: The review of the previous studies related to water transport within the Lekki Peninsula is presented and recommendations for future studies that need to be conducted for the implementation of an appropriate water transport scheme are also included.



♦ Light Rail System: Potential alignment of the light rail system within the Lekki Peninsula is presented. Locations where special measures need to be considered, such as within Lekki

Scheme 1, are identified for further consideration in detailed studies/designs.



♦ Road Networks: The proposed road network that will link the different zones/developments within the Lekki Peninsula is presented along with the proposed right of ways and typical road sections. The road network was designed based on the proposed landuse plan and traffic assessment studies.



♦ Landscaping and Landscape Irrigation: The general concepts for landscaping of the various road classifications is included for consideration during the next stages of the development, including the proposed scheme for irrigation.



♦ Water Supply and Fire fighting Water: Different alternatives for the provison of water to Lekki New City are considered. These are based on the current plans of the water authorities for the provision of water. Recommendations related to the consideration of alternate sources of water are also discussed and included in the report.



♦ Stormwater Collection disposal: The presented scheme for stormwater drainage/management scheme identifies the location an dimensions of drainage canals that need to be implemented during the urbnization of the various zones within the Lekki Peninsula.



♦ Wastewater Collection, treatment and disposal Several alternatives for wastewater collection, treatment and disposal are considered and discussed in the report. The recommended system involves decentralized wastewater treatment facilities that optimizes the.cost of the collection network and that of treatment facilities.



♦ Solid Waste Management: The quantities of the solid waste that will be generated within Lekki New City and schemes for its collection and disposal are presented. These generally conform to the proposed Schemes by the Local Authority, LAWMA.



♦ Power Supply: The estimated total electrical demand based on the proposed landuse plan, builtup areas and activities envisaged within Lekki New City is included along with recommendations fo the transmission and distribution systems for power to the various zones in the Lekki Peninsula.


♦ Telecommunication Network: The conceptual designs for the provision of telecommunication services that are necessary to develop Lekki New City as a smart city is presented. The main supply system of telecommunications services to the various proposed developments along with the potential locations for exchange centers are provided for consideration during the detailed design and implementation stages for the Lekki Peninsula.

The 4th mainland bridge is that thick very long bridge in which is crossing the Lagoon near the head of the Island. It's the longest thickest bridge in the render.

I read here longtime ago that's going to be the longest bridge in Nigerian rather in Africa when constructed. It seems to be shorter than the Nigerian famous bridge from the images posted here. Why is it shorter?

If it's the longest in Nigeria, it will also be the longest in Africa, since Lagos' Third Mainland Bridge is currently Africa's longest bridge.

I think it Will turn Lagos into a Conurbation and One of the Largest Cities by area, stretching further than the eye can see, like Tokyo-Yokohama.

Btw Lekki is not actually Lekki, What we call Lekki is simply phases of development it was never anything, the real Lekki is located somewhere else and the Actual name used to spelt Leckie.
