Lagos Red Line For Test-run Soon

Lagos State’s Red Line Rail is set to commence a test run that will last two months. 

This is according to the Commissioner for Information and Strategy in Lagos State, Gbenga Omotosho, who was speaking at a news conference held at Alausa Secretariat in Ikeja yesterday.

The 37 km Red Line, which was inaugurated by President Bola Tinubu on February 29, is expected to convey 500,000 passengers daily initially, when operational. It integrates key bus terminals at Oyingbo, Yaba, Oshodi, Ikeja, and Iju. It also extends to Agbado in Ogun State.

He also says the state is set to revolutionise commuter experiences while tackling challenges like traffic congestion and road safety.
