Construction of Fourth Mainland Bridge to begin in March, April — Lagos Gov. Sanwo-Olu

SANWO-OLU, Governor of Lagos

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said the construction of the long-awaited 37km Fourth Mainland Bridge will begin by the end of March or April.

Sanwo-Olu stated this on Thursday, Jan. 25, in an address at the Lagos West Senatorial District Town Hall Meeting held at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Sheraton, Ikeja, the state capital.

The governor said, “We’ve done extensive work on the bridge but we are at the crossroads of where to get real financing for that kind of project we need to be very creative but thank God that we have reached the last point of the construction.

“Our commitment is that within this first quarter, meaning that by the end of March or April, we should break grounds to start the construction of the Fourth Mainland Bridge.

“It is going to be built in phases; phase one will be from the Junction at Abraham Adesanya all the way to the Waterfront that we have at Badore.

“I am using this opportunity to say that we have done extensive study, so we cannot get a new road without having to do a little bit of discomfort but we will ensure that we will compensate everybody that their properties or businesses will be disturbed by this construction. So, it is going to be along the existing corridors and a few buildings will be touched.”

The governor said both tenants and landlords of the buildings to be affected would be duly compensated.

He said the next phase would be from the Waterfront in Ado to Ibeshe in Ikorodu and the third phase would be from Ibeshe to Ita-Elewa junction and later to the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
