Lagos Government Accepts Coaches For The Rail Line

Coaches for the Red Line rail system, which is scheduled to start running in the first quarter of 2023, have been delivered to the Lagos State Government.

Gbenga Omotoso Commissioner for information and Strategy said, “the 2 Nos. Ten and Eleven Car trains which were bought from Milwaukee are here”.

He believed that in order to get the train to Lagos efficiently, it needed to be divided into 21 separate carriages.

“The Engineers will also take the opportunity to train our local Engineers whilst they are here to equip our young people with the requisite skills,” Omotoso said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Once the recoupling is complete, the testing and commissioning will commence followed by full passenger operations in the first quarter of 2023.

“Each train can carry 1500 passengers and is expected to run on the Red Line Rail from Agbado to Oyingbo, with the journey taking less than 30 minutes.”
