Landmark Beach Demolished to Make Way for Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway

The Federal Government has commenced the demolition of sections of the Landmark Beach and the Mami Chula Beach Lifestyle. The purpose behind this action is to create space for the proposed Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway.

Minister of Works, Senator Dave Umahi, personally flagged off the demolition process after inspecting kilometres 13, 16, and 20. He aimed to ensure the most economical and viable access to the coastal roads without causing excessive damage. The Landmark Beach, a popular spot for businesses and leisure, unfortunately, found itself in the path of the highway’s right-of-way.

The demolition targets structures that encroach upon the Federal Government’s legitimate right-of-way for the Lagos-Calabar highway.

Several businesses operating at Landmark Beach will be impacted by this decision. The government has assured those affected that compensation will be provided.

Despite opposition from some quarters, the minister emphasized that the highway is essential for economic development. Minister Umahi invoked President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda as he officially initiated the demolition.

In response to concerns, the Chief Executive Officer of Mami Chula Beach, Mr. Bolaji Ariyo, acknowledged the project’s necessity. He recognized that development often comes at a cost and expressed hope that this initiative would contribute to Nigeria’s progress. The demolition process is underway, and documentation for compensation will begin shortly.
