The Lagos State Government is set to initiate the construction of transport interchanges at Marina and Mile 2 in 2024, as revealed by Engr. Mrs. Abimbola Akinajo, the Managing Director of Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA).
This announcement was made during the Lagos Transport Fest event at Four Points by Sheraton, where key figures in the transport sector discussed the future of mobility in Nigeria.
Akinajo emphasized the integration of all transportation modes in the state and unveiled the government’s plans for the interchange construction in 2024.
Additionally, LAMATA aims to prioritize Non-Motorized Transport in its upcoming infrastructure projects.
Notably, the Lagos State Governor, during an inspection tour, disclosed that Julius Berger is expected to complete the Opebi-Mende-Ojota link bridge construction project by the third quarter of next year.
The governor highlighted the challenging terrain but assured that the bridge would include provisions for cycling and pedestrian walkways, addressing traffic issues and providing alternative routes for Lagos residents.
