With a Design Speed of 100 km/hr, the Lot 3 Segment from the Airport Station could be navigated in 30 minutes.
The distance to the Transfer Station (Idu Station), for those plying the Kubwa Line (Lot 1A) or the Lot 1B Line through Jabi and Gwarinpa, is just about 11 Kilometres, plus wait times. Getting from Airport to Idu, should take about 12 minutes.
When completed, this would be a welcome alternative, for those looking to avoid the Abuja Airport Road. Settlements along this route are proliferating and the demand to use the Abuja Metro, will become even more pronounced in the future.
