Global Stringer

West Africa's first standard gauge railway, the Lagos-Ibadan Railway, connects Nigeria's largest port city to one of the country's most important industrial cities. Stretching 156 kilometers long, it will greatly reduce traffic congestion on intercity roads and at local ports. Yakubu Adogie, the project's external liaison officer, shows the construction site.
