VIDEO: 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.
