TTC in talks to sell old trains to Lagos. Are they safe enough?
AUGUST 10, 2011

As Toronto trainspotters gleefully take maiden rides on the TTC's Rocket, commuters in Lagos, Nigeria may be about to get some new trains of their own. Our old ones.

A TTC spokesperson has confirmed that the commission is negotiating with a private group to sell up to 260 used train cars to the West African megacity's new transit project.

"I can confirm that the TTC is in discussion with a third party that wants to purchase trains for Lagos," said commission spokesperson Brad Ross. "Over a period of time, they will be taken out of service and then transported over to Nigeria."

The cars being considered for sale are the TTC's old H-5 and H-6 models, which will be decommissioned as the TTC rolls out its new fleet of Rockets. Ross predicts the earliest they could be shipped to Nigeria is sometime in 2012.

Traffic snarls are already a major economic problem in the Nigerian capital, a booming city that will reach an estimated population of 25 million by 2015. A new above-ground rail system designed to carry 1.5 million people a day has already broken ground, and Lagos Governor Babtunde Fashola has said it "will be the most multi-dimensional and most impactful" of the government's efforts to reduce traffic congestion.

Fashola visited Toronto earlier this year to inspect the TTC trains.

The Lagos deal would be the first of its kind for the TTC. Decommissioned cars are usually sold for scrap metal and can fetch up to $1,500 dollar each. While Ross declined to discuss specific figures, he says the sticker price for Lagos is "significantly more" than scrap prices, putting the potential profits to the TTC in the millions of dollars.

LAGOS State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, yesterday, gave a breakdown of how his administration expended the N160 billion World Bank loan it acquired, saying the state maintained a healthy debt profile.

Fashoa, who spoke during his commemoration of 2,700 days in office and achievements in the last 100 days, in Alausa, Ikeja, said long overdue refund would go a long way in reducing the debt profile of the State, which he said the Federal Government recently published to mislead the public.

He said, “Recently, our political adversaries issued statements that we have borrowed N160 billion. What they have not told you is what we are doing with the money.”

Enumerating his government’s activities within the period under consideration he said; “In the last 100 days, we have commenced work on providing street lighting on the Muritala Muhammed Way in Yaba.

This is 10 kilometres of public lighting which will be completed by the end of this month. On Eko Bridge, Carter Bridge, Ikorodu Road, Lekki-Epe Expressway and every street and highway where there is street lighting in Lagos, it is the Lagos State Government that supplied the poles, the bulbs, the diesel and the maintenance.

“The only major highway we are not managing for street lights is the 3rd Mainland Bridge.

Fire engines, to secure lives, rail transport from Okokomaiko to Marina, with four stations of eight kilometres completed, and work heading to Marina, with piles appearing near the Eko Bridge every day are the places your Government is spending money. The expansion of the Lagos Badagry Expressway to a 10-lane highway is another place where your Government is spending money.

Kindly explain reasons for your answers

For rail, I would do Lagos Kano 3X over Lagos Calabar.

From Kano, you can harmonise Agric produce and even process them and forward them to Lagos for export. They earns the country money and boosts our economy.
From the Calabar route however, movement there is import oriented. you majorly import and move to that axis without exporting anything.

Instead of rail, let the ports in Calabar be put in place to handle larger volumes of cargo and then divert those cargoes to that port.

Lagos to Calabar first because of the trades/economy/ tourism/social culture factor and administrative.

It will serve the entire south east and port Harcourt,

But Lagos to Kano, will only serve Kano and Kaduna.
Both states don't imports up to east esp Anambra, Abia, port Harcourt, Enugu and Imo.

Even the shoes in abia and cars in Anambra can be moved outside, spare parts will be able to be imported also.

Buhari recently completed several train stations on the Ajaokuta Itakpe, Lagos Ibadan and other rail routes, your leaders in PDP were busy fighting over naming the train stations.

GEJ your leader in PDP is Buhari's boy. Buhari is the one commissioning and naming legacies in GEJ's name since you thieves couldn't do anything in 16 years.
You are an inconsequential nobody in PDP. Keep on posting foolish pictures online when your PDP Secretariat is an incompleted building housing vagabonds.

How can they put cable support and still put piers under the same bridge again?
It's either one or the other. Not both

Suspension bridge with cables does not have more than 2 piers and that's for the cable support only.

honestly I think its a combination of beam bridge but with column partens of a cable slayed. Offcourse there should be part of that water thats deeper than the other so the Column designs will vary depending on the differential settlements at different load concentrations.

All the imports the East do, how much does it add to Nigeria's economy?
The Agric exports the North does, how much does it add to the economy?
That is the first thing to ask.

The North needs a rail line to facilitate exports so that Nigeria and Nigerians make more money.

The East needs a seaport closer home to facilitate imports. A seaport closer would also decongest Lagos.

If they have rail, it doesn't mean they won't have seaport.

Lagos and warri has seaports and rail.
So what are you saying?

Do you know how much federal government generates from imports?

I maintain that Lagos to Calabar should come first before Kano and Kaduna.

Nah Igbos go even use Kano and Kaduna maybe 30%

They will export items from alaba to Kano.

Reliance on imports kill an economy, exports grow it. Any sensible government would prioritise exports over imports.

You talk about agriculture.

Previous Govts Initiated ‘Most Of The Things This Administration Is Doing’ – Adesina


A majority of the projects the Muhammadu Buhari administration is working on was inherited from previous administrations, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity has said.

Mr Femi Adesina said this when he appeared on Channels Television’s special Independence anniversary programme on Sunday.

“Most of the things this administration is doing – 60 to 70 percent of them – were initiated by previous governments,” he said.

“That shows you that in the past a government will come and say ‘this is not our project’ And it will discard what was being done and start fresh ones.”

As a result, Mr Adesina said there are many half and quarter-completed abandoned projects.
But rather than abandon the project, he explained that the current administration will complete it.

An example is the Abuja-Kaduna rail project which the Presidential aide said was up to maybe 60 to 70 percent complete when the last administration left.

It's a no brainer, Lagos-kano definitely.
Rail is primarily for transporting cargo; passenger transportation is secondary.
What sense does it make to transport cargo via rail from one coastal city to another when seaports in the other coastal cities can easily solve that?
That's why the British built the Lagos-kano and PH-Maiduguri narrow gauge rail lines to link the seaports to the hinterlands, and not Lagos-Calabar which should come after linking the hinterlands first.

This can only be a topic in a failed country like Nigeria where seaports in Warri, PH and Calabar don't function due to various stupid reasons.
