The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has on Thursday said the Lagos-Ogun Mass Transit Train Services (MTTS) would resume very soon.
The Lagos Railway District Manager, Mr. Jerry Oche, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
“We are looking at resuming MTTS very soon. We are putting finishing touches to the coaches and tracks. Essential staff have also been advised to resume,” Oche said.
According to him, there is no fixed date yet for resumption of the train service, which commuters patronise already.
Oche said that the corporation was working round the clock to see how it could adhere strictly to COVID-19 preventive protocols and maintain social distancing in the coaches when the operations resumed.
He said that coaches of the mass transit trains service were being worked upon to accommodate the possibility for social distancing.
“Though the MTTS has yet to resume, the corporation has been operating freight services from Apapa Port to Alagomeji terminals in Yaba as well as to Ijoko terminal in Ogun.”Follow us on social media
