Landmark Beach Partially Filled with Sand for Coastal Highway Project

Landmark Beach Resort in Lekki, Lagos, is undergoing sand filling on some of its beachfront property. This follows the resort’s demolition notice for encroaching on the designated right of way for the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway project.

The development was confirmed through a video posted on Landmark Africa’s social media account on Wednesday, April 17, 2024. The video shows construction equipment filling in sections of the beach, with areas near the beachfront and the Hard Rock Cafe reportedly almost completely covered.

This action comes despite pleas from concerned Nigerians and stakeholders urging the government to find alternative solutions that wouldn’t disrupt businesses. The government, however, seems determined to proceed with the project, and sand filling marks a significant step forward.

The Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway is a major infrastructure project that is expected to improve transportation links between the southwestern and southeastern regions of Nigeria. However, the project’s route has caused controversy, with Landmark Beach being one of several businesses issued demolition notices.

The impact of the sand filling on Landmark Beach Resort’s operations and the future of the project are still unclear. It is likely that the resort will face significant challenges as it adapts to the altered landscape.
