The federal government says 795 houses will be affected in the construction of the Fourth Mainland Bridge in Lagos.

Mahmoud Abubakar, minister of environment who was represented by James Kolawole, a director in the ministry, stated this on Thursday at a workshop in Lagos.

Speaking at the stakeholders’ scoping workshop on the construction of the 37-kilometre bridge, Kolawole noted that instead of 9,000 structures, 795 building would be affected.

The workshop was attended by representatives of the federal government and officials from Lagos state.


Kolawole, however, urged the Lagos state government to show commitment to compensating the families who own the affected structures.

He also added that the project will positively contribute to the state’s economic growth and enhance international trade.

“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,” he said.


Abayomi Amos, a town planner who spoke on behalf of the Lagos ministry of physical planning and urban development, said the construction of the bridge will link the Abraham Adesanya Estate area in Lagos and Sparklight Estate near the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway in Ogun state.
