Lagos Red Line Rail is inaugurated by President Tinubu

The Red Line Rail Project in Lagos has been officially opened by President Bola Tinubu. The 37-kilometer project is an intra-state rail service that aims to improve city mobility.

The Lagos-Kano Standard Gauge Railway and the red line will share a right-of-way. The route’s significant stations are Agbado, Iju, Agege, Ikeja, Oshodi, Mushin, Yaba, and Oyingbo. It will originally run from Agbado in Ogun State to Oyingbo in Lagos.

For the occasion, the President had flown into the state on Wednesday.

A New Developmental Speed

According to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos Red Line project’s commissioning aims to change the urban environment and accelerate growth in addition to enhancing the city’s mobility.

The Lagos State governor added in a brief post on X (previously Twitter) that “we’re opening doors to opportunities, growth, and a sustainable future” by connecting key places around Lagos.

Before President Bola Tinubu officially launched the project today, the governor tested the Lagos Red Line on Saturday.

The LMRT Red Line’s commissioning, he continued, is “a generational leap for our city” and goes beyond simply being a project.

A 37-kilometer rail route called the Red route connects the important bus terminals at Oyingbo, Yaba, Oshodi, Ikeja, and Iju.
“This launch is evidence of what we can accomplish when we collaborate and have great dreams.

A key component of our plan to establish Lagos as a world-class urban model metropolis is the LMRT Red Line.

“Together, let’s embark on a more promising and interconnected future,” the governor urged Lagos residents and all Nigerians conducting business in the Lagos city.
