LCC to resume tolling operations at Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge – after 18 months

The Lekki Concession Company (LCC) has announced the start of tolling operations at the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge plaza in Lagos.

The LCC had suspended operations at the Lekki Toll following the shooting of protesters during the #EndSARS protest on October 20, 2020.

Some toll booth facilities were also destroyed during the protest.

In February 2021, the state judicial college had approved the reopening toll, but the decision met with objections in some quarters.

In a statement, the company said tolling operations will begin on April 1.

The LCC said commuters using the road will not pay any tolls for the first two weeks until April 15, 2022 “as this period would be free of charge for all motorists using the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge”.

According to Yomi Omomuwasan, Managing Director of LCC, the resumption of services at the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge Toll Gate comes after extensive consultations with key stakeholders including residents associations, traditional chiefs and community leaders, government agencies professionals, as well as the Lagos government.

Omnomuwasan said LCC is back to better serve commuters and the community.

“We have introduced new technologies and innovations to make passages at Toll Plaza smoother and faster for commuters. We are replacing old toll devices with upgraded devices for faster throughput at Toll Plaza,” he said.

“The new devices have been configured to sync with recently upgraded toll systems and will improve functionality while enabling a better experience at Toll Plaza.

“Devices can be installed at any of the LCC Customer Service Centers at Admiralty Circle Toll Plaza, Conservation Toll Plaza or Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge. They can also be delivered to customers’ preferred location, while the devices would only be installed on the vehicle by authorized LCC personnel. »

He added that for more information on upgrading toll devices, modifying an existing toll account or registering new vehicles, customers should contact LCC on its toll-free hotline at 0800 22 555 22, send an e-mail to [email protected]or visit the website www.lcc.com.ng.
