Full cashless policy begins on Lekki/Ikoyi Bridge toll today

The Lagos State Government on Sunday said full implementation of the cashless policy at the Lekki/ Ikoyi Bridge Toll Plaza would commence on Monday (today ).

The state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde , in a statement by the public affairs unit of the ministry , said the full implementation had become necessary .

Nigeria reported that the state government had in 2019 announced that it would go cashless on toll payments at the plaza effective from January 1 due to the delays with cash payments along the corridor .

The policy , however , commenced partially on January 2 .

Oladeinde warned that from January 20, anyone who turned up with cash at the Lekki- Ikoyi toll gate would pay a penalty of N 1 , 000 pending when they would get through with their cashless payment method.

He also warned against all corrupt practices , including photocopying payment vouchers for multiple usage or presenting of fake e- payment devices .

“ 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 they are widely available .

Therefore , such sharp practices are unnecessary , ” he said .

The commissioner , who commended motorists in the state for enhancing the success of the cashless toll implementation, called for full compliance .

He said 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 . ”

He also said the cashless policy had become necessary to address constant gridlock often experienced at that corridor due to slow process of cash payments at the toll plaza .
