Disasters Are Waiting To Occur On Railway Tracks In Lagos (PHOTOS) by AutoJoshNIG: 2:52pm On May 28, 2018


Nigerians have earned for themselves an unenviable reputation as a people who are more reactive as opposed to being proactive.

We are also a people with an incredible poor sense of maintenance culture.

Believe it or not, these railway tracks in the photographs are active Nigerian railway tracks in Lagos, Nigeria.



These sections of the railway tracks, due to a disgracefully poor maintenance activities on them, have become dangerously substandard for locomotive movement.

Their current conditions make them prone to disasters such as train derailments.

At several points on these tracks, some of them have become almost buried in the ground, overgrown by weeds, disjointed at certain points, heaped with refuse, etc.

In addition, some points on these tracks are being subjected to other forms of intense pressure such as human and vehicular activities.

One does not have to be a locomotive technocrat to know that the current state of some sections of these railway tracks can lead to operational errors, mechanical failure of tracks or derailments of trains. And of course, all of these are potentially hazardous to human safety.

Perhaps, the authorities are waiting for disasters to strike before these railway tracks are put in proper working states.

Well they're also hazards to the railways but the most dangerous ones are the unimaginable loads of humans traffic congesting & dangling precariously on these trains.

Save your breath AutoJoshNIG, the greed of a particular region had made them concentrate all federal development to their side while Abandoning Calabar, PH and Akwa Ibom ports as alternatives.

This greed has continued as there's no new rail tracks in the east from Rotimi Iscariot.

Una think you are doing us? grin

The people hanging on these trains are twice the number of those inside.

I hear some are even killed by electric cables.

Disasters are seriously waiting to occur indeed. Everything still borders on our country's poor maintenance culture.

No, the problem is that this is a country filled with people that only want to consume rather than build. Even the new tracks you are talking about are still coming back to condition contained in those pictures because all Nigerians do is to consume and do a makeshift. No creativity towards humanity. Careless minds

That's the main one. Those hanging around the trains and other sitting on top of it. I don't understand how people are not afraid of dying.

How are we going to maintain the infrastructure? When the only thing our leaders know is the maintenance and expansion of their own pocket infrastructure.

Everything is not about the Govt. What have we ourselves done to help matters.

We dump refuse on the rail tracks, Turn the tracks into temporal markets, and then turn around to blame the Govt. for lack of maintenance.
