LCC resumes toll at Ikoyi Link Bridge today –

After months of engagement with key stakeholders in the Eti-Osa / Lekki-Epe region, the Lekki Concession Company Limited has announced the official return of tolling operations on April 1, 2022 at the Ikoyi Bridge Toll Plaza Link.

This was contained in a statement from management, which said toll payment will not begin until April 16, 2022.

The statement adds, “LCC has been a worthy part of the Eti-Osa/Lekki-Epe ecosystem and has served the community tirelessly and to the best of its ability over the years. We are encouraged by the response and cooperation received from the vast majority of residents and stakeholders who appreciate the value we bring to their daily journeys and continue to register (or update) their toll accounts in preparation for the start of cashless toll. collection. All the points raised during the fights are well taken.

“While 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 infrastructure needs of an ever-growing population.

“As funding for the project was provided by the original private sector sponsors and contracts were signed with various local and international financial institutions, in the spirit of respecting the sanctity of contracts, the government of Lagos State continues to meet these obligations when it purchased over the shares of LCC, thus taking over both the assets and the liabilities.

“To ensure a smooth return, LCC has deployed new, more efficient technology at the Ikoyi Bridge Toll. Therefore, to test the new system and ensure a seamless interface with road users, the first two weeks will be entirely free.

“LCC remains committed to providing a safer and better driving experience on the Ikoyi Link Bridge.”
