The Lagos corridor of the 156 kilometers Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge rail line would be fenced to avoid casualty within the metropolis.
Mr Jerry Oche, District Manager, Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) said that the fencing would stop human and vehicular accidents along the rail line.
“The standard gauge is going to be fenced. When there is a barrier, it will prevent people from encroaching on the rail line.
It will be faster and people will be prevented from indiscriminate intrusion,’’ he said.
Oche said that with the barrier in place, it would be illegal for people crossing the blockade for any reason at any point in time.
“It will not be business as usual. It won’t allow suicide mission and we wouldn’t want that to happen.
“That is why we are warning people now before the operation start,” he said.
