The Proposed 4TH Mainland Bridge & Masterplan In Pictures by centvin008(m): 4:16pm On Apr 26, 2016
There are great opportunities in the heart of Lagos…

With these opportunities come an intense congestion; causing pressures that threaten to paralyze the city’s circulation, its growth and its people.

To reduce this pressure, we propose an operation – the 4th Mainland Bridge. The operation will be the insertion of a bypass; a bridge within the body of Lagos. In addition to this bridge, we also propose a new heart to support the bridge. This ‘new bridge and new heart’ in the body of Lagos will not be typical infrastructure; they will connect people in large numbers and improve their natural flow through a reorganization of vehicular, waterways, and pedestrian modes of transportation.

The 2 level bridge will not only function as a means for vehicular traffic on its upper level, it will stimulate and accommodate pedestrian, social, commercial and cultural interactions on it’s lower level – ‘Lagos Life’ – with its tropical environment and intimate street level exchanges. The Fourth Mainland Bridge in conjunction with existing road networks would establish a primary ring road around Lagos. This ring road will provide alternative traffic routes from Lekki to Ikorodu, Ikeja to Ajah, relieving the 3rd Mainland bridge of its overstretched capacity.

With this improved flow of people across Lagos, the city will be relieved of traffic congestion, will maximize its great opportunities and grow better.

4th mainland bridge is a shortsighted waste of money as a result of lack of planning.

Why do we need another bridge to a tiny island,that will be under water, in less than 100 years.
Like the badly concieved mega city thingie,which has resulted in the spread of an urban ghetto sprawl,this money would have been better spent on reclaiming what has been lost.
Instead of a single business district , would it not have been better to have a series of business districts like the central business district and use it as a launching pad to regenerate entire areas.
Like one business district in Ketu, Surulere, Agege and Ojo respectively thereby reducing the need for a new bridge all the time.
That money would also be better spent building a subway system or urban railways system.

1Congestion charge( btw the time, you have to pay)
2 Bicycle lanes
3 cheap Overground trains and other mass transit systems without fancy stations
4 expensive vehicle and driver licensing regime apart from commercial vehicles. E.g Singapore is 3 times the size of lagos, has a lower population but makes driving private cars a very expensive affair.
5 The proposed new city being in dubai( masdar city) will not allow cars into the city centre ( last pix

Exactly what I am talking about. They wouldn't have to.instead they will be transporting themselves to business districts in Ketu, Ojo, Surulere etc

This particular one is a waste and absolutely unnecessary. That state is already choked with vehicular traffic. Lagos needs to cater less for cars but more for trains, underground and bicycles.
Even the British knew this and made sure that you pay through your nose if you drove to the island ( there were parking meters everywhere,every 30 minutes, you had to feed the meter).
They have a metro already. Complete it,ring the street with overground railway, raise revenues with heavy congestion charges and biannual driving licenses, create bicycle lanes. This is what cities elsewhere are doing.
Not continue to waste money on ever expanding cities.
To even think about the amount of petrol being consumed in the state ( stuffs they should be exporting).
Let me guess, Once they quickly get all those vehicles into the island, they will have to waste more money expanding roads on the island.

I think it is worth debating in an open minded way rather than approach the discussion as if there is only one side. The issue is can better value be got spending the money elsewhere. My position: honestly I do not know but I think a public debate of alternatives is worthwhile

You still went ahead and modify your post to make it worse.

The construction of the forth mainland bridge wasn't planned yesterday nor today Mr. Just take a sit and see how it goes...

I once supported this project but after studying the direction cities around the world are going, I have changed my mind.
Imagine what cities like London and New York would look like if they had been catering for cars going into Manhattan or Central London.
In actual fact, you hardly see residents default to driving because the governments actively discourage it, thereby proactively reducing the need to continously expand infrastructure and diverting such to education wealth and other social services.

Lagos back in the days.

How will this bridge solve the traffic gridlock if it starts from Lekki Ajah .

The traffic from V.I to Lekki- Ajah alone is time consuming.

Nice. At the rate that Lagos is growing, we should be talking about a 5th, 6th and 7th mainland bridge between the mainland and the Island/Lekki corridor -- which is perhaps the fastest growing corridor in Africa. There are already plans to expand the light rail to cover and link more areas of the state. Lagos obviously wasn't originally developed to accommodate the level of growth its currently experiencing, therefore any visionary government would do what the current government is doing. Like someone once said, I'd be interested in finding out how many cities around the world with a mainland and an island and a population of 10-million and over which have only 3 links between the mainland and island. Arguing against this would be tantamount to arguing against the 3rd mainland bridge that we are all thankful for having today.

While schools and hospitals remain below par.
I am beginning to think that a new breed of leaders are needed in the SW. 4th mainland is a loud "O-try" project in the same category as a flyover in Ekiti.
A colossal waste of money.

Bro, I understand and respect your pov but I see no reason why schools and hospitals you speak of can't be upgraded simultaneously with the much-needed development of better and more efficient transport systems within the state. The state can do/have both. undecided

That's why there's a tram system incorporated in that bridge.

(It's a two-tier bridge, incorporating a roadway on the upper level and tramway, shops, pedestrian walkway, etc on the lower level).
