Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sunday told the media that his government will kickstart the construction of the 38km 4th Mainland Bridge this year. The governor made this revelation at the 2022 Thanksgiving Service held at the State House, Ikeja, Lagos on Sunday.

Sanwo-Olu said this New Year 2022 is a special year for his administration, because it would be the final full year of the four-year mandate given to him by Lagosians in 2019.

“It will therefore be a Season of Consolidation, a year in which we hope to complete all ongoing projects and significantly advance our journey towards the Greater Lagos of our collective desire.

“By the special Grace of God, the vision of having the largest Rice Mill in sub-Saharan Africa and one of the largest in the world will become a reality this year.

“Also, this year 2022 will witness a milestone achievement in the rail transportation system in our State, as we expect the 37km Red and 27.5km Blue Line Rail projects to commence commercial operations between the last quarter of this year and first quarter of 2023,” he said.

The governor added: “Equally, construction work on the 38km 4th Mainland Bridge — which will be the longest in Africa – and the Opebi-Mende link bridge will commence this year. 2022 will also witness, by the special Grace of God, the completion of the ongoing reconstruction work on the 18.75km Eleko to T-Junction in Epe, the 10km Lekki Regional Road, and the section of the Lagos-Badagry Expressway that the Lagos State Government is constructing with the permission of the Federal Government.

“These are just a handful of the projects that will be completed or advanced this year. Indeed, 2022 will witness remarkable development on various fronts: Infrastructure, Technology, Health and Education, Security, and many more; all of which will translate to a significant improvement in the quality of life of all Lagosians.”
