The inspection tour by the governor is coming 5 months shortly after he had flagged off the construction of the 37-km-long Red Line, which starts from Agbado and terminates at Oyingbo.
The Blue Line project, which commenced in 2010, is currently at over 80% completion.
Sanwo-Olu said that the take-off of the Red Line project represented a major breakthrough for his administration in its drive to deliver an integrated transportation model that would ease road congestion in the state.
He said, ”We are excited about the ongoing rail projects being undertaken by the Lagos state government and there is a huge number of jobs being provided to Nigerians, engaged by the contractor at all stages of the construction work.
”There is over a thousand personnel working at the Marina Terminal alone. We are happy with the extent of work on both projects. What we have seen at the Ikeja Station, which is the second biggest station after the one being built at Marina, gives us so much hope that the projects are on course.
