795 houses to be demolished for Lagos 4th Mainland Bridge

 

The federal and Lagos State governments, on Thursday, said about 795 houses might be demolished to pave the way for the construction of the 37-kilometres Fourth Mainland Bridge.

They said a lot of efforts were made to reduce the number of affected houses from the initial 9,000 to 795.

This was revealed at the Environmental Social Impact Assessment Stakeholders’ Scoping Workshop on the project in Lagos.

The Minister of the Environment, Mamoud Abubakar, who was represented by a director in the ministry, James Kolawole, said there should be a sincere commitment on the part of the Lagos State Government on compensation for the affected families.

“There is an alignment that should affect about 9,000 structures along the corridor, but we have reviewed it and gone for the alignment that will affect about 795 houses instead of the one that will take more houses. It is an ongoing thing on how best to minimise the negative impact,” the minister stated.

He said the bridge would boost the state’s economic growth and enhance international trade.
