Project Summary & Trade Leads

The Lagos State Government has recently received approval for a credit from the World Bank Group towards the cost of the Lagos Urban Transport Project, and it intends to apply the proceeds to payments for goods, works, related services and consulting services to be procured under the project. The project includes the four following components: 

 1. Capacity strengthening of Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) to continue to provide an overall vision and a strategic planning basis for transport planning, regulation, implementation, monitoring, and administration and coordination of sector-wide management; and building capacity of bus operators.

 2. Public Transport Infrastructure and Enhancement of Traffic Management Systems: This component would finance infrastructure construction and supervision, including interchange and traffic management.

 3. Road Network Improvement; This component would finance routine maintenance of the declared road network; periodic maintenance of strategic roads which are degraded but structurally still intact to ensure that they remain in a maintainable condition; and rehabilitation of strategic roads identified to be structurally damaged. Under this component, LAMATA will further enhance capacity of the Pavement Management System.

 4. This component would finance technical assistance, equipment, vehicles, office equipment, and other operational support for monitoring project progress and, on an ongoing basis, transport system supply, demand and performance; institutional, technical, procurement, and financial audit; project outcome monitoring in terms of transport (including safety), environment, social, and capacity development indicators.
