Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode will this week commence the long awaited regeneration of Oshodi into a world class Central Business District (CBD).

The project, an iconic Transport Interchange, first in Africa, will feature the consolidation of all 13 city and interstate parks in Oshodi into 3 multi-storey bus terminals.

The three floors, which will be 30, 000 square metres for each terminal, will take care of the parking and passenger demand. Buses will use the ground floor to pick passengers and part of the space will be turned into a shopping mall.

The project which was designed by a Nigerian company, Planet Projects will be delivered within 15 months.

The animation in the video was also done by Planet Projects.

    This project can’t be achieved in the next 15 years. Not without a constant and steady power supply and a corrupt free society
