Lagos red line to cater for one million passengers daily

The Lagos red line is expected to cater for one million passengers daily when completed.

This was disclosed by the Managing Director of Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), Mrs Abimbola Akinajo, during a panel session on rail transport at the National Transport Technology Conference and Exhibition held on Wednesday in Lagos.

Akinajo,  said the blue line would also be expected to transport 750,000 daily.

She said, “a study has been conducted on the red line that it should serve a million passengers, while the blue line should serve 750,000 passengers a day.”

The LAMATA boss also noted that the rail lines would not only be sustainable, but they would reduce carbon emissions greatly when they begin operations.

She noted that the blue rail line would be electric, while the engine of the red line, though would run on diesel, but could be converted to electric to tie into the plan of reducing combustion in the mega city.
