Lagos State Government said it had procured four single Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) car train coaches expected to operate on the Lagos Urban Rail Network (LURN), especially on the blue and red lines which are under construction in the state.

Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Dayo Morebeola made this known yesterday at the 2016 ministerial Press briefing in commemoration of the first year in office of the State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, in Alausa, Ikeja.

“The Government has procured a single Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) four car train operations,” the commissioner said.

Also, the phase 1 is from Mile 2 to the National Theatre where infrastructure works are 95 percent completed. The phase 2 is from the National Theatre to Marina where we have achieved 40 percent completion.
