Proposed Lagos 4th Mainland Bridge to gulp N160bn

The Lagos State Government has said that its proposed Fourth Mainland Bridge will gulp N160bn.

Governor Babatunde Fashola on Wednesday said a survey had already been conducted for the project.

Fashola spoke in his Alausa Secretariat office while receiving members of the Silverbird Television Group on Wednesday.

He said the government was only waiting for the Environmental Impact Assessment report for work on the bridge to begin.

Fashola added that the project was being delayed because of inflation, adding that the government would ensure its completion before the end of its tenure.

The governor noted that the construction of the bridge was part of his electoral promises and that he would ensure its fulfilment.

He said, “The 26-kilometre Fourth Mainland Bridge will commence from Langbasa in Lekki, Eti-Osa Local Government Area and will link Victoria Island to Ipakodo, a Lagos suburb in the Ikorodu Local Government Area.

“The road will provide access from the hinterland to Victoria Island, which will reduce traffic on the ever-busy Third Mainland Bridge and other bridges linking the mainland to the island.”

The spokesman of the Silverbird Group, Mr. Guy- Murray Bruce, expressed the group‘s desire to collaborate with the state in reviving its glory in sports.

He also declared the intention of the group to provide a sports hall for the promotion of boxing in Lekki.
