The Lagos State Government has begun constructing two interchange hubs at Mile 2 and Marina to integrate various modes of transportation and ensure seamless connectivity between rail, water, and road networks.

The groundbreaking ceremony for these hubs was conducted on Tuesday by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi, along with officials from Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (LAMATA).

This announcement was shared in a statement posted on LAMATA’s official X (formerly Twitter) account on Tuesday.

“The construction of two interchange hubs at Mile 2 and Marina commenced today with the groundbreaking ceremony performed by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Mr Oluwaseun Osiyemi leading Agence Francaise De Developpment (AFD) and the the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (LAMATA) officials at the event.

The statement also revealed that the project is funded through a credit from the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) along with counterpart funds from the Lagos State Government.

AFD’s Country Director for Nigeria, Mr. Xavier Muron, who attended the groundbreaking ceremony, explained that AFD’s investment in key transportation projects, including the interchange hubs and the Quality Bus Corridors, aims to address the longstanding challenges of the first and last mile of transportation in the state.
