  • We will soon complete the Blue Line of our railway 

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwoolu explained how his administration is working tirelessly to put an end to traffic congestion in the state using technology, waterways, and railways.

The Governor gives account to the people of Lagos State of his stewardship and determination to ease there worries and ensure Lagosians live a better life in Lagos. He said the state has acquired seven new boats and he is looking forward to a ‘water taxis’ that can ferry up to 80 passengers at a time, which will greatly reduce the number of road users.

He said his cabinet had approved the deployment of a six-kilometre wide metropolitan fibre optic cable to be laid across the city. Upon completion, it would deliver fast Internet broadband to all residents across the length and breadth of the State.

The project, which is expected to be delivered in four months, would be used to drive compliance with the State’s traffic laws as well as expand the capacities of its waterways, the Governor said.

Our medium to long-term plan involves the strengthening of water transportation system. We have just acquired about seven new boats and we are about introducing ‘water taxis’ that can ferry about 60 to 80 passengers each on a single trip. In our long-term plan, we are developing our rail system by completing the Blue Line, which started from Mile 2 to Marina.”
