The Yaba Overpass, built to facilitate access to the Red Line rail station, employs a T-bridge design and is one of five such overpasses to be constructed by the Lagos State Government. The Federal Government is expected to complete the remaining five, ensuring a clear separation between vehicle and train routes for enhanced safety.JAMB Portal

Speaking at the inauguration, Sanwo-Olu said, “About three years ago, we commenced the construction of four bridges across rail lines between Oyingbo and Ikeja. The bridges, located at Ikeja, Mushin, Yaba and Oyingbo, are designed to ensure the safety of our people.

“Over the years, we have recorded avoidable fatal accidents on railway crossings, most of the time due to human errors. We recall the last one which occurred in March this year at PWD/Ikeja GRA level crossing involving a Lagos State government staff bus. Sadly, lives were lost and people suffered varying degrees of injury in that accident.

“Today’s ceremony is, therefore, significant because, with this overpass and others at Ikeja, Mushin and Oyingbo, which will be formally opened before the end of the year, there will be no more occurrence of train-vehicular accidents at these locations.”

The governor, while speaking on the projected completion of the Red Line rail before the end of the year, said the construction of the Green, Purple and Orange Lines rail system would commence soon.

“It’s my pleasure to announce that three additional rail lines will be added soon, because we’ve done extensive feasibility and viability studies. The Green Line is a 68km rail route from Marina all the way to the Lekki Free Trade Zone. The Purple Line is a 60km length all the way from the Redemption camp in Ogun State to Ojo Majority in Lagos West region. And, of course, we also want to do the Orange Line, from Agbowa in Ikorodu to Ikeja,” he said.
