Fourth mainland bridge will make travelling from Lagos to Abuja a four-hour journey Minister of Works, Dave Umahi says – The Minister of Works, David Umahi , has said that the proposed Lagos 4th Mainland Bridge Supersonic Highway will make travelling from Lagos to Abuja a four-hour journey.

According to a statement released by the Director of Press and Public Relations unit of the Ministry of Works, Blessing Lere-Adams, Umahi stated this during a visit to Ogun and Oyo states on Thursday, August 31, in continuation of his highway inspection tour.

During a meeting with the Ogun State
Governor, Dapo Abiodun in his Office in
Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, Umahi was quoted to have said;

“Let me announce to you that Lagos proposed 4th Mainland Bridge Supersonic Highway will take four hours to drive from Lagos to Abuja . We had a presentation on it yesterday with the consultant and it’s going to be on Public Private Partnership (PPP), driving from Lagos to Abuja will take 4 hours, we are concluding on it within one or two months and work will start.

We have a programme called Highway
Development Management Initiative (HDMI) and it allows states and other private investors to engage with the Federal Government either to take over a fully constructed road to toll and maintain it in partnership with FG or take a brand new road and reconstruct it and toll it under laid down agreement.

I am very much open to that, we also bring some roads architecture into this kind of arrangement. Solar lights where we can fix CCTV to monitor our roads and increase visibility; this will largely reduce insecurity and also create service stations.

We can monitor security at these service stations; we have mini clinics, toll vans at these stations just as we see outside the country.”
