4th Mainland Bridge: 800 houses to be demolished

26 April 2016, 16:13

Lagos - The Lagos State Government has announced that 800 houses will be demolished for the construction of the proposed 4th Mainland Bridge.

This is contrary to the 3 000 houses that were initially expected to go down when the project begins.

Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure Ganiyu Johnson said the number houses to be demolished reduced as a result of the newly designed alignment.

He however, said that owners of the 800 affected houses would be duly compensated by the state government.

“The proposed bridge will traverse from Ajah to North West direction towards the lagoon shoreline to Lagos-Ibadan Expressway via Ikorodu. The approximate length of the road/bridge is 37.9km with a design speed of 140km/h.”

“Lagos State Government has held discussions with a consortium of consultants in furtherance of the project.”

“This lies in its capacity to rapidly decongest the traffic gridlock within the Lekki corridor and redistribute traffic towards Lagos Mainland which serves to meet increased future road infrastructure demands.”
