6 Years After, Where is The Lagos Cable Car?

In 2013 when the project was first announced under the former Lagos State Governor administration, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, the CEO of Ropeways Transport Limited, Dapo Olumide, the company behind the project said:

"By complementing existing transport modes, the Lagos cable car transit system will play its part in reducing the traffic congestion in the city."

“There is need to ameliorate the existing congestion on the three bridges connecting Lagos Mainland to Lagos Island"

Once it's completed the cable car will reportedly run from Ijora to Apapa and Victoria Island, with Adeniji Adele as its central hub. The former Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Dayo Mobereola, told Guardian Newspapers that the cable car project will eventually have eight stations in three routes, in order to handle an estimated 240,000 trips a day.

Work is expected to begin with the Apapa-Adeniji Adele route, where the firm should open commercial operations next year. When everything is finally up and running, the system will be about 12km long, with a journey from Apapa to Adeniji taking roughly four minutes and costing a fare of between N100 and N300 per ride.

This is 2018 and we are yet to see the realization of this project though we see a signboard of RopeWays at Obalende Roundabout under the bridge, we are still waiting for this dream to come into place.
