Lagos State Govt Begins 4-Year Channelisation Of Ferry Routes

The Lagos State Government has embarked on the channelisation of 30 routes on the waterways, which is part of efforts to boost transportation in the state.

The Commissioner for Water Infrastructure, Mr. Ade Adesanya, made this known on Tuesday during an inspection tour of the Marina-Ebute -Ojo ferry routes in Lagos. According to him, the channelisation would be executed over a four- year period.

Mr Ade Adesanya said that work had begun on four of the channels, explaining that the move was aimed at ensuring smooth journeys on the waterways and ultimately boosting the state’s economy.

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, also said that the government embarked on the project to further attract investment in water transportation and boost tourism potentials in the sector. He expressed optimism that the move would also enable those engaged in ferry business to generate more income and in turn pay their taxes to the state.

The routes where work was ongoing include Ojo-Marina, Baiyeku-Ajah, Ijede-Marina and Ijede to Badore.
