The Lagos-Ibadan rail tracks have been linked to the Apapa port, the China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC) has said.
The contracting firm said that the connection was done on January 25.
It said it linked the rail tracks to the port with the successful pouring of the last 25-meter monolithic track bed superstructure of Apapa Port Break Bulk Line.
“The Apapa Port Spur Line of Lagos-Ibadan Railway starts from the Mobolaji Johnson Station, Ebute Metta and extends southward to Apapa Port, with a total length of 8.72km.
“As a crucial channel linking the main line of the Lagos-Ibadan Railway to the port, it has become an important transportation passage for the import and export of goods and now serves as a significant guarantee with regards to the comprehensive operational efficiency of the Railway,” it said.
