The Lagos government says the state is in talks with Ogun to extend the blue line rail to Agbara, a town in Ado-Odo/Ota LGA of the state.

Olasukanmi Okusaga, director of rail transportation at the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (LAMATA), said both states have commenced discussions on extending the rail system to Agbara. 

“Today, Lagos Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (LAMATA) officials led by Director of Rail Transport Engr. Olasukanmi Okusaga inspected the ongoing construction of the Blue Line Phase 2,” a statement from LAMATA reads.

“Engr. Okusaga expressed satisfaction with the progress achieved so far. He also revealed ongoing discussions with the Ogun State government to extend the Blue Line further down to Agbara. The project, which was awarded in 2023 is expected to take three years to complete.”

LAMATA added that the project will include six stations in Festac, Alakija, Trade Fair, Volkswagen, LASU, and Okokomaiko, with three bridges in Maza Maza, Satellite Town, and LASU, covering a 14-kilometer stretch.

The agency said there are also plans to construct a depot in Okokomaiko.
