No going back on 4th Mainland Bridge –Sanwo-Olu

 

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Wednesday, said his
administration is determined to build the Fourth Mainland Bridge.
He also highlighted key component of his administration aimed at
delivering his Greater Lagos vision. Sanwo-Olu revealed his
administration’s strides while answering questions as a guest on
Channels television’s flagship programme, Sunrise Daily where he said
the construction of the 4th mainland bridge, would make use of private
equity to achieve the project.
“Two weeks ago, we advertised the 4th mainland bridge project locally
and internationally. Our total budget for next year is about $3
billion and that’s the highest in the country. The 4th mainland
bridge, from the design we have seen that it is a 37 kilometres road.
We cannot handle it alone so we are going to use private equity. We
have advertised. We have the alignment, we have the right of way and
all of the biometric study. Let everyone worldwide come and play a
role,” he said.
The Governor reiterated his administration’s commitment to adopt
technology to combat crimes and reduce them to the barest minimum.
He said: “One of the things we realise is that security is also going
tech. You need a lot of technology and devices to monitor crimes, and
whilst we are doing a lot of hard things, we are also building up
technology.
Next year, we are building a new Control and Command Center as part of
our Safe City project and Mega City security deliverables. We are
going to bring to Lagos all those security measures you see in
developed Nations.
“At the first phase, we will install about 2,200 high definition
cameras across the State. From a CCTV, we can view, review, monitor
and track incidence as they happen. We will also train officials.
These are some of the things that will happen in the first quarter of
next year.”
