Lagos Goes Cashless with Collection of Tolls at Lekki/Ikoyi Toll Gate

- Advertisment -
The Lagos State government has today begun the implementation of the cashless mode of payment by motorists at the Lekki/Ikoyi Bridge Toll Plaza.
The state government had in 2019 announced that it would go cashless on toll payments  from January 1 due to the excessive delays experienced along the corridor with cash payments.
It, however, commenced partially with the state government saying the implementation would commence in full scale on the 20th of January.
The State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement by the Public Affairs Unit of the Ministry, said that the full implementation of the policy had become necessary adding that anyone who turned up with cash at the Lekki-Ikoyi toll gate would attract stiff penalty of N1,000 pending when they would get through with their cashless payment method.

“The state government will not hesitate to apply the law on any motorist that attempts to frustrate its effort at improving traffic situation along the Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge corridor.

“The e-tags are free to obtain and widely available. Therefore, such sharp practices are unnecessary,” Oladeinde said.
The commissioner added that the cashless toll initiative had the objective of removing bottlenecks at the toll gates and impacting positively on the reduction of traffic queue length and journey time for Lagosians.
Oladeinde urged those who had yet to obtain their e-tags to do so as full compliance would be enforced, now that the additional two weeks grace for motorists to align had elapsed.
The Managing Director, Lekki Concession Company Limited, Yomi Omomuwasan, said motorists could make their e-payments through e-tag, the vouchers system, the e-card and the LCC Mobile App for top-up.
According to him, any interested member of the public who may experience difficulty in registering could reach out to the company.
He said these could be through: 07011753784, 07015838157, 08002255522 or customer@lcc.com.ng.
He promised that the company would work round the clock to ensure the success of the new policy.
