The Lekki Concession Company Limited (LCC) has announced plans to resume activities at the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge Toll Plaza by April 1.
The revelation was made by the LCC managing director, Yomi Omomuwasan.
He said motorists would be offered a two-week toll-free passage.
Mr Omomuwasan said “Tolling will commence on 1st April 2022, but commuters plying the corridor will not have to pay any toll for the first two weeks until 15th April 2022 as this period would be toll-free to all motorists plying the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge,”
“The resumption of services at the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge Toll Plaza, according to LCC’s Managing Director, Yomi Omomuwasan, is coming after extensive consultations with, and the support of key including the Residents’ Associations, Traditional Rulers and Community Leaders, professional bodies, as well as the Lagos State Government.”
He further said “We are replacing old toll devices with upgraded ones for faster throughput at the Toll Plaza,”
“The new devices have been configured to synchronise with the newly upgraded tolling systems and will improve functionality while enabling a better experience at the Toll Plaza.
“The devices can be installed at any of LCC Customer Service Centres at the Admiralty Circle Toll Plaza, Conservation Toll Plaza or the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge. They can also be delivered to customers’ preferred location, whilst the devices would only be installed on the vehicle by LCC’s authorised personnel.”
You would recall that this announcement comes 18 months after the toll Plaza was shut down due to the police brutality during the October 2020 #EndSARS protest in the state.
