New Lagos to Ibadan High Speed Rail

Post by Abdul-Rahmaan »

Im opportune to be spending quite a bit of time near the Omi Adio station end of the new rail.

Thus I’ll be updating this thread with information on this axis.

Take a trip with me.

The carcass of the station is completed.

Interesting days ahead and trust The Autoist to have current details of this section.

There’s a rumor that there’ll be free train rides starting today between Lagos and Ibadan.

I seriously doubt this based on a visit to the Omi Adio station today.

It has started.

“ The Nigerian government has raised alarm concerning the stealing and replacing of clips, bolts and knots on the Lagos/Ibadan rail line.

Managing Director of the Nigerian Railway Corporation, Fidet Okhiria, said 5,000 clips and 10,000 bolts as well as knots had been replaced along the rail track.

Mr. Fidet said, “You can’t imagine that between Lagos and Ibadan, we have replaced over 5,000 clips and close to 10,000 bolts and nuts on the track and it is not a good thing at all.

“Without those things on the tracks, accidents can occur.
