To ease traffic along Lagos/Ibadan express road, the Federal Government has disclosed plans to commence free train services from Ebute Metta, Lagos State to Ibadan by November 30, 2019.

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, mandated China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC), which is handling the project, to complete the remaining 19-kilometre track to link Iju Ishaga to Ebute Metta by November 25.

But the Deputy Project Manager, CCECC Railway Project, Xia LiJun, complained of the feasibility of the date, urging the government to give the firm more time as the weather conditions and the traffic gridlock in Lagos metropolis would not allow them deliver on the November date.
