President Bola Tinubu is set to inaugurate the Lagos State Red Line Rail project.

Tinubu, who arrived in Lagos on Wednesday from Ondo State, will take-off to Qatar after inaugurating the Lagos Red Line train.

The Red Line project, which will link Oyingbo to Agbado, is expected to run on the federal government’s Lagos-Ibadan rail line.

The rail project is being undertaken by the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), an agency under the Ministry of Transportation.


The Lagos light rail network was flagged off by the Bola Tinubu administration in 2003.

The new rail line will provide a fast and efficient way for commuters to travel between different parts of the city. It is also expected to help reduce traffic congestion and pollution.

It was reported that the Red Line project will move more than 500,000 passengers daily, stretching over a distance of 27 Kilometres from Agbado to Oyingbo with eight stations at Agbado, Iju, Agege, Ikeja, Oshodi, Mushin, Yaba, and terminates at Oyingbo.
