#EndSARS: After 18 months, Lekki toll gate to begin operation April 1


The Lekki Concession Company has announced the reopening of the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge Toll Plaza after 18 months of tolling suspension.

According to the operators, tolling will commence on April 1 but commuters plying through the route would not pay for the first two weeks.

Payment would commence at the toll gate April 15.

LCC’s Managing Director, Yomi Omomuwasan, noted that the resumption of operations was necessary after consultations with key stakeholders including Lagos State Government, resident associations, traditional rulers, community leaders and others.

He said, “Tolling will commence on April 1, 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 Nation reports.

Omomuwasan said, “We have introduced new technology and innovations to make passages at the Toll Plaza seamless and faster for commuters. 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, according to Omomuwasan, 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.
