VIDEO: The Great Wall of Lagos

The Great Wall of Lagos

The Eko Atlantic city, the most impressive urban development project in Nigeria, will change the face of Africa and transform the Lagos State into a megacity.

The latest video showcases impressive 8.5-kilometer-long Great Wall of Lagos, one of the most important structures of the Eko Atlantic city project.

The main construction works on this giant sea/revetment wall, which is being built a mile and a half off the coast of Victoria Island, have now passed the halfway mark.

Structural design of the wall has been rigorously tested by the world-renowned Danish hydraulic research center DHI. Scale model trials proved that the Great Wall can withstand the 1000 year storm.
