Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to building and completing the Fourth Mainland Bridge, a 38-kilometer-long bridge that would connect Lagos Island to Itamaga in Ikorodu through Langbasa and Baiyeku across the Lagos Lagoon.
Speaking at the swearing-in ceremony for his second-term cabinet members on Wednesday, Sanwo-Olu said his administration would focus on constructing Phase 1 of the bridge, which would link Ikorodu, Epe, and Ibeju-Lekki.
“This bridge will further open up the eastern corridor of Lagos and catalyze economic growth and development for millions of Lagosians living and working in that area,” Sanwo-Olu said.
The Fourth Mainland Bridge is planned to become Africa’s second-longest bridge. It would have two lanes on each side, with room for a bus rapid transit lane and future road construction.
The bridge would provide a much-needed alternative route to the existing bridges, which are often overloaded.
