Lagos-Ibadan Railway: An Eyewitness Account Of The Abeokuta Station, Oke Mosan by AutoReportNG: 2:06pm On Jan 19
The Lagos-Ibadan Railway is one project that the South Westerners can't wait to see come into actualization. It is a project that cut across three states namely, Lagos, Ogun and Oyo states. The project will help to curtail the traffic and also make life easier for Nigeria. People in Ibadan, Abeokuta can get to Lagos in minutes and return to their home without the hassle and struggle of traffic. The minister of transportation has been following the project like his pet project, according to him, he can't wait to see the vision and the project become a reality.

Just as the minister for transportation, Mr. Rotimi Ameachi has mandated Nigerians not to "siddon look" and read all news on dailies and social media, he said he has mandated all securities around all construction sites to allow Nigerians to take pictures and verify all constructions across the country.

People seem to be holding him for his word as a man named Otunba Sula has gone to verify the Lagos-Ibadan railway Abeokuta Station at Oke Mosan. According to him, he went to check things for himself and also give a first-hand reportage of the real issue, read his account below...

So I visited this site just this morning (Sunday) and it was busy as usual. The scale of work is awesome and there's huge progress made already.



I wanted to see the work done on the Lagos/Ibadan rail around Abeokuta Station for myself so I paid a visit.

I caught soldier units all around, all I had to do was courtesy & smile at them and they allowed me through.

Apparently, they don't allow just anyone in to not disturb the flow.



It's incredible how they've surmounted the challenge (in little time) of building a tunnel for a rail path under the Abeokuta-Sagamu dual carriage highway.

Not so far from that tunnel is a huge bridge (actively undergoing construction) and an even smaller tunnel.



I'm uncertain what this huge 'machinery thaing' does exactly but I bet it has something to do with laying rail tracks (perhaps specifically over bridges). I've seen a smaller one along this same rail path over the old Abk/Ibd express road.



And here comes the tracks.. It's a long way down... My unprofessional phone camera could only try.





I must have walked no less than 2 kilometers along the rail path from the highway.



Editorial Note:
Due to some strong words used by the author, we have to edit some parts and also we can't upload all the pictures as they are many. You can check the source for more if you wish.

Progress.
The good thing about this project in addition to evacuating the congested port and easing travel to and from Lagos, is that it's sited in a region where development is highly appreciated and always rewarded with votes in return.

Not those who will swear with their lives that no such project is going on, insisting they just passed there recently and no such project exists. cheesy
South West is 4+4

Everybody shld go to the poll and choose their leader in 2019.. Whatever happens eventually, we accept it? Sell your vote to highest bidder, enjoy the moment.. But remember, their is a price to pay
Some of the prices we are paying for our indecision in 2015 includes:
Recession
Hunger
Inflation
Fuel hike
Insecurity
Kidnapping
Bandits
Fulani Herdsmen
Marginalization
Unemployment
Poor education
Bad governance
Harassment
Lawlessness
Unlawful detention
Nepotism
Corruption
Homelessness
Depression
Today, basic things in the market, are not affordable. Kerosene, gas, rice, beans etc are very expensive..

Either Buhari likes it or not, HE IS GOING BACK TO DAURA after Feb 16th TO GO CELEBRATE HIS VICTORY WITH HIS KINGSMEN AND RETURN TO ASO FOR ANOTHER 4 YRS. tongue

P!GS AND ID!OTS couldn't read further. grin

Any attempt to would inevitably lead to total collapse of the body system already weakened by pain, anger, disappointment and insane hatred.

I'm always excited everytime i pass through Oke-mosan, laderin on my way to Lagos.

This is one of the reasons we will vote for buhari. I know some idiots will still come here to ask stupid questions that "what have you benefited from Buhari's administration."


Here in the South west we don't deny projects, we don't lie that they are old pictures, we appreciate projects like these and we want more.
