It was reported in January according to Punch Newspapers that despite the challenges facing the construction of the Lagos-Ibadan rail project, the facility would be put to use by January 2019.
The government said it had adopted carefully considered measures to holistically tackle the challenges of obstruction caused by water, gas and sewage pipes, adding that Nigerians would start enjoying the rail line from the first month of next year.
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, gave the assurance after the monthly meeting of the Lagos-Ibadan Rail line Project Steering Committee at the Ibadan Railway Yard, Ibadan, Oyo State.
Amaechi was quoted in a statement issued in Abuja by the Director, Press and Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Transportation, Yetunde Sonaike, as saying, “We hope this project will be completed within the lifespan of construction. Nigerians are putting us under immense pressure.
Well, we can gladly say to you that work has started in earnest at the Lagos-Ibadan Rail Project and these are some of the pictures we can gather.
The question is that, Is 2019 feasible for this project? Time will tell
