Are you not guys positive for once? Must we always have this evil mindset towards our country? Imagine you own this building which costs $70m to build, will you pray that all you have ever laboured for that Agbero should take the building?

The holy book says, you are ensnared by the words of your mouth

Be good bro..
why are you sounding like you don't know that that area is till controls by agberos. That area is dangerous at night, I pass there everyday, don't try to mislead people.

It’s not an “either-or” situation, as both are not mutually-exclusive and would ultimately complement each other.

The Light Rail project is a much more complex and expensive project, and since the Oshodi Interchange is a PPP (private-public partnership) project, it was probably the lower hanging fruit of the two in a situation of relatively scarce resources. Nonetheless, work continued (and continues) under the Ambode administration on the Light Rail project, particularly on the rail bridge over the Lagoon that is now well-advanced and headed towards completion. There was also the agreement entered into with Alstom (the global rail infrastructure giant) to electrify the Blue Line and to source and finance the acquisition of modern rolling-stock (instead of the previously-sought used NYC subway cars).

The Lagos Light Rail project also succinctly illustrates the constraints of Nigeria’s peculiar overly-centralized “federal” system. The Red Line was the first line that was proposed to be built because it would utilize the Nigeria Railway Corporation’s existing right-of-way. Unfortunately, the previous federal administration interminably delayed the approval to use said RoW, compelling the Lagos Government to change course and embark on the Blue Line instead. This however meant an extensive redesign and realignment of the Blue Line, which was initially designed to end at Iddo. In addition, it took the NNPC over 3 years to remove/relocate its pipelines along the Blue Line’s RoW, causing delays.

Finally, when discussing the cost of the Light Rail project, bear in mind that when it was launched in 2008 the exchange rate was approximately N118/$1. Presently it is approximately N363/$1 (after rising to as much as N520/$1 a couple of years ago). Accordingly, if (for example) the project is to cost $1 billion (N118 billion at launch), it means that the Lagos government now has to find an ADDITIONAL N245 billion just to be able to pay for the same project (that is, even without accounting for any project or cost variation). Given all of the foregoing, the Bus Reform Initiative (pursuant to which the Oshodi Interchange was built) was probably the far more expedient project.

He's saying the truth. Agberos are a product of lagos government. If those who built this structure don't go the extra mile to protect it, those parasites (agberos) they help create will take over it.

This is awesome and a good step in the right direction of building a truly cosmopolitan city.

My grouse however, is the usual lack of maintenance culture which has continually remained our achilles heel.

I wished the citizens could be sensitized and orientated on handling and caring for public infrastructures.

We have to deeply look for the root of the our "maintenance culture" problems.
1st I think by educating people and by educating our people they need information.How do you pass the info to them?
We need to create awareness by encouraging our to be listening to radio and watch TV.
How can they be watching tv when they don't even have electricity at home.

By creating 24 hours electricity,the people's mind will be at peace.we will see that the aggressive attitudes of many of our people will come down.
If there's affordable 24 hours power supply to every home across the country,you will that everything will become calm and normal again.And there will be more kindness from people to people.
Government purse will go up more than X100 of what they have now.
Citizens will be paying more taxes and regularly.There will be fine and traceable database for all the citizens,foreigners and guests in the country.
The security and everything will change henceforth.


God where did we get it wrong?
Please forgive us all our sins and cleanse our dear country from all agonies.
And You God alone we will serve from this generation and generations to come forever.

Ps.As I am typing I just again shedding tears for the sufferings and agonies our people are going thru with no viable help on sight.

God please forgive us our sins.Amen.

The guy is very frank. Let's not deceive ourselves with being religiously positive or not. There are some things that are very glaring that don't require much thought. I have been to the construction site multiple times and also accessed the environment. That structured is an over-hyped project that is a failure already. It can't be managed and used effectively. The government is just building a shelter for miscreants who stay around there. Don't argue about this, just wait till it is completed and opened for use.

that is just the simple truth the structure would be controlled later by agbero unless the government hand it over to a private management company, check other infrastructure in the state and check how it is being handled, the fact still remains that agberos and thugs are one of the reasons projects done in Lagos don't last long

one of the things the government can do to maintain this edifice for very long time is to hand it over to private firms for management, and widen the roads leading to the edifice and also give handle the edifice and environment just like an airport I don't know a better way to express my opinion, in fact putting a military stand there so that agberos won't trespass is not bad, something should be done abeg, I love the project

I think we should rephrase his submission as a cautionary advisement. I understand the Blue-line has a direct connect to MM1 and it is the only bus service allowed at the airport; such that Airport pick-ups/traffic can be decongested and people can pick-up or get connecting transportation from the Oshodi Interchange. With this, we have a security challenge on our hands. We must rid Oshodi of Urchins, Gangs and Cults who are potential robbers

Fantastic post.

I believe we need about 7-10 more of these Bus Terminal in the following places

1. Epe
2. Ikorodu
3. Sango
4. Ipaja/Idimu Axis
5. Badagry
6. Badore/Ajah
7. Isale-Eko/Marina
and other "hot-spots"

All these should be aligned with the intra-city rail network.......

I think they need to finish that project completely b4 people start using it cos here in naija once people rush to start using the facilities contract automatically stop working and the place is left haphazard 90% incomplete.

Actually, it is not all project that require 100% completion before you launch. Some requires a stretched "go-live" period and for some you may start before everything is in place, provided the "Pre-startup Audits" gives the go ahead.

Yes I know this bt do the projects ever get 100% finished afterwards or they are abandoned at the 90%. That’s been my observation and concern.

This particular project is market driven. In about 2 years, managing "traffic volume" will be our head-ache and not finishing 100%. Private sector players will come in, a lot of partnerships will ensue......

U don’t get my point. If u go to Dubai or China they don’t start a project or construction and leave it haphazard and unfinished and let people start using it like that. Even If people begin to use the facilities they must ensure they finish the structure or project to 100 percent completion.

I’m not talking about servicing or maintenance yet.

Bros,

Let's learn to walk our "own" "waka", forget Dubai. I am telling you completing this 100% is given. Just like Autojosh posited, if TBS has been going 3+yrs and running strong, this will not only be completed, it will be optimally used. There are bigger issues....This bus park is a pin in the Ocean for a state like Lagos. We should be considering how we will build at least 5 more.
