Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, announced on Thursday that the construction of the much-anticipated Fourth Mainland Bridge is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of this year, specifically “by the end of March or April.”
Governor Sanwo-Olu shared this information during his keynote address at the Lagos West Senatorial District Town Hall Meeting held at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Sheraton, Ikeja.
He assured that the construction would occur in phases and emphasized the commitment to compensate landlords and tenants affected by the demolition of structures during the project.
“We’ve done extensive work on the bridge. But we are at the crossroads of where to get the real financing for that kind of project. We’ll need to be very very creative,” he said.
“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,” Sanwo-Olu added.
