Lagos discloses when work will begin on Fourth Mainland Bridge


CITIZENS COMPASS —Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Thursday, January 25, 2024, said  the state government will commence the construction of the Fourth Mainland Bridge in March or April.

The 37km Bridge is expected to link Ikorodu and Lagos/Ibadan Expressway with Ajah, Lagos.

He stated this in an address at the Town Hall meeting organised by the Lagos West Senatorial District held at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Sheraton, Ikeja. 

He 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.”
