Admiralty-lekki-ikoyi Bridge: What Is The Solution To Regular Traffic There? by AutoJoshNG: 3:32pm On May 14


The Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge was constructed to provide an alternative route in order to escape the Lekki and Ozumba Mbadiwe traffic gridlocks. 


Sadly, another traffic monster seems to have been created at the Admiralty Way roundabout inward Lekki-Ikoyi tollgate.


Traffic leading to the roundabout is typically slow. This is as a result of a buildup of vehicular traffic ahead of the Tollgate.

The buildup of traffic often stretches a considerable distance backwards on the Admiralty Way.

This traffic congestion has made Admiralty Way a nightmare to the residents and road users who commute using that route.

Some Motorists now avoid the Lekki-Link Bridge axis of Admiralty Way like a plague, instead, alternative inner roads are explored by them.

However, those who have to get on that bridge are left with no other option than being stranded in the traffic bottleneck.

When Autojosh visited the location, we engaged some of the road users to get their views about possible solutions to this frequent traffic congestion at that location.

Some attributed the bottleneck to the wide roundabout median at the intersection leading to the Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge Tollgate.

They believed that reducing the width of the roundabout median would go a long way to ameliorate the traffic issues at that location.

Others blamed the problem on the inadequate number of toll-booths at the Tollgate.

Some respondent were a bit ambitious with their suggestions, as they believed that a flyover on that spot would provide a much-desired solution.


If you live around that axis or ply the routes regularly, what solution would be the best to overcome that traffic challenge there?

It’s a no brainer. The width of the round-about is the main cause of traffic there,and that bill-board will make it daunting to deal with . Not my business tho’ ; the residents of phase 1 are not complaining.

It's supposed to be an alternative route free of traffic. It's now officially the headquarter of Island traffic

The toll gate should be completely removed. You don't construct a toll gate in a residential area. It never happens anywhere in the world.

Failed APC government embarassed cry

AutoJoshNG, my two pence; that bridge should be declared an exit point with Toll, VI toll gate should made an entry point for residents of Lekki/Epe axis.

Simple... The bridge should be bombed

Two temporary things should be done to reduce the traffic.

The roundabout at the Lekki area of the bridge should be erased and replaced with traffic lights.

Secondly, the toll booth should be uprooted and moved further down towards Ikoyi. That way, the backlog of traffic from Lekki would be on that bridge. The problem with this solution is that the traffic is now transferred to Ikoyi in the mornings.

But the best thing is to remove the toll gate for free entry and exit.

Here is my submission. I hope someone can show this to powers that be and also FRSC:

We need to work on our traffic rules and regulations, remodel our roads and traffic light signs and road signs.

We can work with timing of the day as we know some times are high traffic times than others.

Using the Lekki Epe road as a case study with area of concentration from the "Sand filled" Toll gate to Ajah jubilee bridge.

From 6am to say 10am vehicular traffic is more from Ajah towards the Sand filled Toll gate. And scanty vehicular movement from Sand filled Toll gate towards Ajah. At this time of the day the side with less vehicular movement can be given one lane on while the free two lanes can be added to the 3 other lanes of the other side(I am assuming that stretch is a 3laned road on either side) this action will ease the traffic by almost 75%.

After these rush hours the roads are returned back to normal and these will be clearly communicated by road signs and traffic lights.

During closing hours say 5pm to 8pm the process is carried out again but this time on the reverse lanes.

This can be achieved on other roads in Lagos and other parts of Nigeria. All we need is a little modification. As we grow in population we need to evolve from old strategies to new ones that can accommodate the new trend.

This is my submission, someone should share it with people of influencee

Remove the toll.

In China,tolls are associated with traffic jams. It's a necessary evil

While your submission is a very good one, until Lagos drivers learn to maintain lanes instead of switching anyhow the solution will be difficult to implement.

They don't want the spillover of traffic to enter Ikoyi. Ikoyi na exclusive neighbourhood.
