Blue Rail Lines Lagos
27km
1.2 billion dollars
Abuja Light Rail
36.7km
841.64 million dollars.

I don't get it, is it the Light in Abuja case made it cheaper than Lagos considering it has a higher distance? Or Land was reclaimed in the former?

The question u ought to ask urself is that is Lagos and Abuja having thesame topographical features? Abuja is a dry plain land unlike lagos which everyone knws is water logged. So u can expect thesame project to consume thesame amount of money in two different locations. Abeg dey use ur bra*n small small biko

Hi Lordnath

I must commend you for the effort you've gone through to put these pictures up. They are informative and as well educative. I'd love to partner with you thereby adding some flame to this project. Am on my way home and as usual, to past the time, I go to nairaland. Saw ur thread on the Trending section.

If you don't mind, I'll be sending you a private message so we can talk in private without interference.

Thanks.

Smh... Those aren't modern development at all! Nigerians need to do something and develop in a better way. The environment is very disturbing to the eyes.

Lordnath:
I have observed for long that many in the country do not know about projects going on around them. I remember discussing with someone back home about the land reclamation work ongoing in Lagos and the birth of a new city- Eko Atlantic City, the whole gist was foreign to him. How could someone be so much in the dark on such a big project going on in his backyard? I wondered. This brought me the idea of harvesting picture updates on some of Nigeria's biggest projects and no better place would be a fitting platform than the largest online forum in Africa- Nairaland.

This topic would thus help people back home and those of us in the diaspora to follow up on some interesting projects going on in the country.

Each project is introduced in this format with accompanying pictures;

The Lagos rail consists of elevated sections which enable it to flyover roads, flyovers, built up areas and swamps so large concrete footings are constructed for kms.

The Abuja rail seems to run only on land so will be cheaper and easier to build.

I suspected that though, considering Abuja has 'light' before the rail

Is the rail in Abuja supported with a ten lane freeway with BRT access, multiple overhead bridges, over water bridges, multiple rail stations, underground cable ducts and so on?

The answer is CAPITAL NO...

Freeway or highway alters the fact that it has BRT access, multiple overhead bridges, over water bridges, multiple rail stations, underground cable ducts and so on and whatever they are doing in Abuja has non of that?

He is right, it is called a freeway since it is a controlled access highway.
Freeway - A controlled-access highway provides an unhindered flow of traffic, with no traffic signals, intersections or property access. They are free of any at-grade crossings with other roads, railways, or pedestrian paths, which are instead carried by overpasses and underpasses across the highway.

So what becomes of it when filling stations start springing left n right? A freeway of just 28km? I doubt if there is any road in the country that can be classified as an expressway not to talk of freeway

I love this thread...... I'm doing a course on city development and we got to study a lot of examples of modern cities in the west that were built from the scratch and are still being built. I have to write a paper on a city, it's development strategies, analyse it n all and i remembered,there's something like this going on in Lagos,Nigeria why not read about it and find out more,so i started reading a lot about eko atlantic and it's an amazing project. I'm really impressed at how far they have gone, the strategies employed and all. I can't wait for it to be completed.
So i'm using eko atlantic as my study case,i hope i write a good paper smiley

I didn't insult you, but you leave room for insults when you keep spewing dumb and ignorant nonsense. It's not by force to comment or even post on the internet..

Bro when they say freeway means combination of main carriage which does not require any restriction or control, if you want to leave or join the freeway you join through the service lain. The main carriage lane is the freeway and the service lane serve you for the purpose mentioned above.

Someone who lies on his bed and press his phone will be asking the developments under Gej. If other ex presidents did something this would have been an addition not a beginning. Gej will go down in history has a bearer of the light of development in Africa.

I don't get it, is it the Light in Abuja case made it cheaper than Lagos considering it has a higher distance? Or Land was reclaimed in the former?

Due to the urban and built up nature of Lagos, most of the Lagos rail lines are elevated. The Lagos lines are almost like a 27km long flyover. That's not the case for the Abuja project which goes mainly on uninhabited dry lands.

This should explain the cost difference.
