Lagos to open bid for Fourth Mainland Bridge


The Lagos State Government has said it will on Wednesday open bid for firms that showed interest in the construction of the Fourth Mainland Bridge. The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, stated this while addressing the press as part of activities lined up to mark Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s 200 days in office.

Omotoso, who said local and international firms expressed interest in the construction of the bridge, said the bidding would be done at a ceremony to be hosted by the state government. The commissioner added that the Sanwo-Olu administration had put a special focus on infrastructure, traffic management and transportation to reduce gridlock.

He said, “I boldly state here that the THEMES agenda of the Sanwo-Olu government is on course and will be achieved. The speed of projects implementation has now increased, especially since the last 100 days.

“The government is leveraging the private sector, which controls about 80 per cent of the state’s Gross Domestic Product, as crucial in the government’s drive to bridging the infrastructure gap and building the smart city of our dream.
