The cars being used are from the old used from Toronto, but still it's not such a bad thing to start off with. The first arrived in Sept. '11

First subway cars leave Toronto for Lagos
http://www.railjournal.com/newsflash/first-subway-cars-leave-toronto-for-lagos-1333.html

TORONTO Transit Commission (TTC) has released the first of 255 cars which it has sold for operation on the new Blue Line under construction in Lagos, Nigeria. The cars will be refurbished in the United States before being shipped to Lagos.


Eko Rail is involved in a public-private partnership with Lagos State to equip, operate and maintain the Blue Line for 25 years, and will invest about $US 400m in the project. The Eko Rail consortium is led by Verod Capital, Nigeria, with Investec, South Africa, as lead financier.


The Blue Line is expected to carry 300,000 passengers a day with trains running at 5-minute headways.

Eko Atlantic Phase One: Land Reclamation Progress
Phase One of the New City

Eko Atlantic is evolving rapidly from a visionary design concept into reality. The reclaimed land of Bar Beach on Victoria Island, Lagos, is providing much needed recreational space for the people of Lagos and their families at weekends. Children are playing on sand which would have been under metres of ocean just a year ago. The Great Wall of Lagos is already protecting the newly reclaimed land for the Business District.

Dredging is continuous and we sometimes move as much as 10,000m2 of sand each day. Sand-filling for phase one was completed in April 2011. Well over two million square metres of land had been reclaimed by the first quarter of 2011 and is available for use. Development on this land is expected to start before the entire land reclamation phase has been completed.

No update as of now. The building was approved nearly five years ago and was to be constructed but as of now..nothing.:/ This doesn't mean it's dead though or there is no demand. Hopefully we get an update this year.:)
