The Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) has said the Lagos Blue and Red rail lines will be operational by December 2022.

General Manager Mrs. Abimbola Akinajo, said this when officials of the Office of Transformation, Creativity and innovation (Office of Head of Service) visited her Wednesday.

Akinajo said LAMATA was working assiduously to ensure the rail lines were delivered by December 2022.

She said: “These two lines will change the transport landscape of Lagos when operational. We have a transport master plan which speaks to the vision of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on transportation.

“We have six rail lines and one monorail, 14 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridors, over 20 water routes, and we are sure that when all of these are properly harnessed, Lagos will join the league of cities with an efficient transport system.

“We have advertised four other rail lines for the private sector to invest in. We are working with the private sector to bring in about 1,500 high capacity buses by 2022.

“We would be launching our First Mile Last Mile scheme soon. We are working on the construction of two interchanges at Mile 2 and CMS. We want to ensure that Lagosians travel in comfort.”
