The President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has approved the construction of the $2.4 billion Lagos red line rail project.

According to Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Dayo Mobereola, approving the right of way for the project had been a problem for donkey’s years as the Federal Government in the previous administration was reluctant to do so.

Bear in mind, the right of way belonged to the Nigeria Railway Corporation, NRC.

“It took us four and half years to get approval for the project. It took us another four years to get them to discuss the technicality of the project with us. The right-of-way has been approved and we are in full discussion with the bidders,” he said.

Speaking on the Blue Line Light Rail project, the commissioner said the government would complete it by the end of next year.
