The contract for the construction of the much-talked-about Fourth Mainland Bridge in Lagos has been awarded to Messrs CCECC-CRCCIG Consortium.

The Lagos State government announced the team as the preferred bidder for the project, which is to be executed through a public-private partnership (PPP).

In a statement on Thursday, the Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Public Private Partnerships, Mr Ope George, explained at a briefing in Ikeja that the project would comprise the construction and operation of a greenfield tolled road and bridge with a design speed of 120km/h, including the development of adjacent real estates.

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

The Governor’s aide further said the bridge is also expected to span about 37 kilometres, starting from Abraham Adesanya in Ajah on the Eti-Osa-Lekki-Epe corridor and traversing the North West towards the Lagoon shoreline of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway via Owutu/Isawo in Ikorodu.

Mr George explained that after the bids were evaluated, Messrs. CCECC-CRCCIG Consortium emerged as the preferred bidder, while Messrs MOTA-ENGIL (Nigeria & Africa), CCCC & CRBC Consortium, were chosen as the reserved bidder for the Fourth Mainland Bridge project.

“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 November 27, 2019. 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 April 15, 2020, with a total of 15 responses. Upon evaluation, six bidders met the criteria to progress to the Request for Proposal (RfP) stage,” said.

The Special Adviser restated that the bridge will reduce congestion on the existing Carter, Eko and Third Mainland Bridges while opening new areas of the city for future developments.
