The engineering work today completes a total of 1,967 piles foundation, and we have completed three 306 platforms, 310 piers, 267 cover beams and the erection of 984 T-beams.
“We are not just making promises; people are beginning to see that all the milestones we are meant to get to to ensure the operation of the Blue Line are being achieved.
“The Marina Station, which is the iconic terminal for the Blue Line, will be completed within two-and-half months.
I am restating here that we will formally complete this Blue Line before December 31, 2022.
“While we are at this, the Red Line is also on the way.
“This is a start-and-end project for our administration, with about seven stations concurrently being built that will redefine mass transportation in Lagos.
“To our citizens, I say the Blue Line is for real and you will ride on it in no distance future.
“This achievement signposts our administration’s commitment to bringing succour to Lagosians and give them choices in mass transportation,” the governor said.
