Lagos- Ibadan Railway: FG To Construct Overhead, Underground Ways in 3 States.
Federal government has concluded an arrangement with these State governments to construct standard underpasses and overpasses at level crossings the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
The Managing Director of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC), Engr. Fidet Okhiria, said, “The policy is that there should be no physical level crossing; it should be either overpasses or underpasses.”
Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi had last weekend during an inspection of the project at Moniya in Ibadan hinted that the government would bring relief to communities that were displaced as a result of the train service.
“We have in the course of constructing this rail line elevated the track. There are communities along this line whose life has been disrupted. For some of them, erosion has set in; they can’t cross to the other communities.”
