The Red Line rail project is a 37 Kilometer North South rail route proposed to run from Agbado to Marina with 13 stations at Agbado, Iju, Agege, Ikeja, MMIA International, MMIA Domestic, Oshodi, Mushin, Yaba, Ebute meta, Iddo, Ebute Ero and Marina. The project upon approval and completion will complement Traffic and Transportation pillar of the T.H.E.M.E.S agenda thereby reducing traffic gridlock and predictability of movement by ensuring productivity and efficiency. It will also provide alternative to road and water mode of transportation within Lagos metropolis. LASG signed a track sharing agreement with the Federal Ministry of Transport through Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) and the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) in 2018 to utilize the track standard gauge railway track planned to convey commuters between Abuja and Lagos through Ibadan and Alagbado to Iddo. The State considered this a strategic point of reference to collaborate with NRC who will only run three services into Lagos at three sets and defined service hours during each day. The Red Line rail project on the other hand will run several services each hour, hence the decision to share the track which will be out of use for most of the day by NRC was considered extremely efficient on resources of the state. The State Government through LAMATA awarded the survey, design and construction of the civil and fixed infrastructure of the first phase of the red line project to China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) with the intention of engaging a competent and experienced private investor through a transparent and competitive procurement bidding process to operate and maintain the red line rail mass transit project. Messrs. First Global Commerce Solutions led other companies like Yab Merkezi Construction and Industry Incorporation, First Metro Dynamics Limited and others to form a consortium named First Metro Infrastructure Limited (FMIL) for the purpose of operating and maintaining the red line rail project and executing Agreement with Lagos State Government. In addition, the first metro has emerged as preferred bidder to operate and maintain the redline and negotiations has been completed with agreement drafting stage ongoing
