Lagos State government through the Office of Public Private Partnerships has formally confirmed shortlisting three bidders for the construction of the 4th Mainland Bridge in Lagos.

The state government in a statement issued by the special adviser to the governor on PPP, Mr. Ope George, said the 4th Mainland Bridge is a proposed Public Private Partnership transport infrastructure development, which includes the construction and operation of a greenfield tolled road and bridge with a design speed of 120kmh, including the development of adjacent real estates.

George said the bridge is expected to become the 2nd longest in Africa, featuring three toll plazas, nine interchanges, a 4.5km lagoon bridge and an eco-friendly environment.

“It is expected to span about 37 kilometres, starting from Abraham Adesanya Street in Ajah on the Eti-Osa-Lekki-Epe corridor and transverses the North West towards the lagoon shoreline of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway via Owutu/Isawo in Ikorodu.

“It aims to relieve severe congestion on the existing 3rd Mainland Bridge; whilst opening new areas for future development. The project is expected to cost us $2.5billion.’’

George said the project had gone through the competitive bidding process, the request for proposal Stage 1 (RFP 1) and the request for proposal Stage 2 (RFP 2). The RFP Stage 2 was then issued to three shortlisted bidders, namely: Mota-Engil (Nig & Africa) CCCC & CRBC Consort; CGGC – CGC Joint Venture and CCECC & CRCCIG Consortium.

The evaluation committee, which comprised representatives from the state government, Ministry of Works, OPPP and the project advisers, commenced the evaluation of the submitted RFP Stage 2 documents on 17th November, 2022, with the announcement of the preferred bidder to be published before the end of the year 2022.
