Free Lekki, Ikoyi Toll: Updates From Lekki And Ikoyi Toll Gates - Photos by AutoReportNG: 12:38pm On Jul 11
agosians received the news with mixed feelings yesterday when the governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu said that both the Lekki and Ikoyi toll gates will be free for Thursday only as from 6am to 9.30am. According to the governor who was at the Lekki toll gate on Wednesday, he said, Thursday, July 11th will be a toll-free day during the morning and evening peak hours for vehicles plying the Lekki and Admiralty toll plaza in Lekki and Ikoyi.

According to reports, the toll plaza would be left open between 6.30am -9.30am and 4.30pm -8.00pm, this is being done to study the traffic movement and also suggest ways to reduce traffic in these areas.

AutoReportNG was monitoring comments from road users base on these two gates that are Lekki and Ikoyi respectively. Like magic, base on comments so far, there seems to be no traffic. According to Ms. Chidima who posted on her twitter page, she said, I passed the Ikoyi-Lekki toll gate this morning... no traffic... no payment. Thank you Lagos State Government. You just made life easier for a mother rushing to get her child to school and making it early to work.



Also, a man named spotless has this to say, It really worked H.E. I think the toll gate also contributed to the traffic in Lekki Epe express road. cos I left the park around 7.35 and we are in Lekki toll gate @ 810 aside the traffic light hold up.

Lastly, Ms. Kehinde Adewusi has this to say, Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge is free as the government investigates the obvious. Of course, it's the damn toll gate that's causing traffic in that axis. Thanks, @jidesanwoolu, at least you have the answer to the experiment, no? @agbegidana

The question on the lips of road users is, will Lagos State Government stop the tolling on these roads? While we await the governor's decision on this, these are some of the image we managed to get across the various pages we monitored.

When a thief robs you on a daily basis, the day he decides to spare you, you will mistake it for benevolence.

Remove all the cashiers from the toll gates and make all pay points automated (it charges you as you drive through) and watch how the Lekki axis traffic drastically reduces.
Nigeria is too cash based. I haven't used an ATM in years (apart from when I pay offering in Nigerian church).

Rubbish 419 policy. If you want to cancel it, cancel it. Which one is free on Thursday for 3.5hrs at morning and at night. What of the remaining week days and weekends? What of the other times of the day on Thursday? Is like this governor want to dey wine us, mtshewwwww. Even around 1 - 3pm, that Ozumba - lekki toll area is always heavy on traffic. Scrap the toll, and end the traffic one and for all. You can never see traffic at the ikota 2nd toll gate that's free. Only the lekki one and ikoyi link bridge. You collect money yet still suffer motorists with traffic every single day.
