Tolling Resumes At Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge With Free Access For 14 Days

The tolling at the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge resumes today with two weeks of free movement for commuters.

Recall that the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) earlier announced that the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge toll plaza in Lagos, will commence on Friday, April 1, 2022.

The toll plaza was shut down after hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protests in October 2020.

After months of engagement with key stakeholders within Eti-Osa /Lekki-Epe area, LCC in a statement signed by Yomi Omomuwasan, its managing director, said toll payments will not commence until Saturday, April 16.

Omomuwasan said LCC made the decision to resume operations after months of engagement with key stakeholders within Eti-Osa /Lekki-Epe area.

"LCC has been a worthy part of the Eti-Osa/ Lekki-Epe ecosystem and has served the community relentlessly and to the best of its ability over the years.

"We are encouraged by the response and the cooperation received from the vast majority of residents and stakeholders who appreciate the value we bring to bear on their daily movement and continue to register for (or update ) their toll accounts in readiness for the commencement of cashless toll collection.

"All the points made at the engagements are well taken.", the statement reads. 

"Whilst LCC is aware of the concerns expressed by some stakeholders regarding the return to tolling, it is common knowledge that the government cannot, on its own, meet all the infrastructural needs of the ever-growing population.

"Given that the funding for the project was secured by the initial private sector sponsors and contracts were signed with various local and international financial institutions, in the spirit of respecting the sanctity of contracts, the Lagos State Government continues to meet these obligations when it bought over the shares of LCC, thereby taking over both the assets and liabilities".

Omomuwasan further stated that to ensure a smooth return, LCC has deployed new and more efficient technology at the Ikoyi Bridge Toll Plaza for seamless interface with road users.

Officers and trucks of the Lagos State Police command were sighted at the Lekki Toll bridge to prevent disruption of the commencement of service by LCC.
