The Lagos state government has announced CCECC-CRCCIG Consortium as the preferred bidder for the construction of the Fourth Mainland Bridge (4MB) project.

Ope George, special adviser to the governor on public-private partnerships, disclosed this at the agency’s office in Ikeja on Thursday.

George said the 4MB project, which is a proposed PPP transport infrastructure development, will comprise the construction and operation of a greenfield tolled road and bridge with a design speed of 120 kilometres per hour, including the development of adjacent real estate.

He added that the bridge, when completed, would become the second longest in Africa with three toll plazas, nine interchanges, a 4.5km Lagoon Bridge and an eco-friendly environment.

The project, George explained, is also expected to span about 37 kilometres, starting from Abraham Adesanya in Ajah, on the Eti-Osa-Lekki-Epe corridor and traverse the north-west towards the lagoon shoreline of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway via Owutu/Isawo in Ikorodu.

“You will recall that the Lagos state government commenced a competitive bidding process for the selection of a concessionaire, by the issuance of the request for expressions of interest (REOI) on 27th of November, 2019,” George said.

“A total of 52 responses were received with 32 being responsive.

“Subsequently, a request for quotation (RFQ) was issued on February 10, 2020 to the 32 eligible applicants and responses were received on 15th April, 2020 with a total of 15 responses.

“Upon evaluation, six bidders met the criteria to progress to the request for proposal (RFP) stage.”

The list was further streamlined to three bidders last month, as the state promised to announce the winner by year end.

George explained that the bids have now been evaluated and CCECC-CRCCIG Consortium emerged as the preferred bidder while the Mota-Engil (Nigeria and Africa) CCCC & CRBC Consortium, was chosen as the reserved bidder for the project.

The special adviser said the bridge would reduce congestion on the existing Carter, Eko and Third Mainland Bridges while opening new areas of the city for future developments.
