Minister expresses dissatisfaction over railway project

Aminat Isah, Abuja
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has expressed dissatisfaction over the slow pace of the Lagos end of the Lagos-Ibadan Railway Project by the Chinese Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC).
Amaechi stated this on Tuesday while inspecting the ongoing construction work of the Lagos end of the project.
He noted that CCECC has not made major progress in the last three months particularly, between Ebute-Metta and  Apapa Ports.
According to him, “If I say am impressed with CCECC on the Lagos angle of the project, I will be lying. The problems of water pipes, gas pipeline, sewage and other challenges which hitherto was impeding progress of work has been resolved.”
He noted that the Lagos end of the project is critical and any delay of construction work would affect the scheduled completion period of the project.
The minister however commended the Contractor for the appreciable level of progress achieved so far between Abeokuta and Lagos and Abeokuta and Ibadan.
He said: “You will agree with me, between Abeokuta and Lagos and Abeokuta and Ibadan, CCECC has done fairly well.”
On the December completion period, the Minister advised Nigerians to be patient as the Federal government is committed  to deliver the project in good time.
ROYAL NEWS learnt that a total of 10 Stations will be constructed along the corridor of the Lagos-Ibadan Railway line. Apapa, Lagos, Agege, Agbado,  Kajola, Papàlanto, Abeokuta, Olodo, Omi-Adio and Ibadan.
