The Lagos State’s vision of a multi-modal transport system is gradually crystallising as the Ministry of Waterfront Infrastructure Development has pledged the prompt and timely delivery of quality water jetties through several ongoing projects in some parts of the State.
The Honourable Commissioner for Waterfront Infrastructure Development, Arc Ahmed Kabiru Abdullahi, made this known during the continuation of his assessment tour of ongoing jetties across Lagos, assuring all residents that the present administration is committed to ensuring timely completion of the projects.
Speaking at the location of the ongoing Mile 2 Jetty project, Abdullahi disclosed that when completed, the jetty will boost the multi-modal transportation system of the State as it will serve as an interchange platform for commuters to board either the Blue Line Rail or BRT Bus to their destinations when they alight from the ferry or vice versa.
This, according to him, will further improve the intermodal transportation system of the State towards actualising the Greater Lagos vision.
He expressed his satisfaction with the quality of the job done so far and promised that all the Ministry’s projects would be monitored and executed to stand the test of time in tandem with world standards.
The Commissioner also visited other ongoing jetty projects at Ebute Ero, Ijede and Okera-Nla among others.
