Gov Sanwo Olu Declares Wednesday Free Passage At Lekki And Ikoyi Toll Gates...

In furtherance of Lagos State Government’s real time traffic simulation survey being carried out with the aim of reducing traffic congestion around the Lekki-Epe and Ikoyi axes, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has again approved the opening of Lekki and Ikoyi toll gates during peak hours on Wednesday 17th July 2019.

A statement signed by the Governor’s Deputy Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile stated that a toll-free passage at the toll plaza on Lekki-Epe Expressway and the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge would run between 6:30am and 9:30am in the morning, and also at the peak period in the evening (4:30pm to 7.30pm).

The statement reads: “Lagos State Governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared toll free for all motorists going and coming out of Lekki axis during rush hours tomorrow, Wednesday 17th of July 2019 to allow the State’s consultants complete the traffic simulation survey that was started a couple of weeks ago.”

The toll free hours, Sanwo-Olu stated, was to allow traffic consultants to the government carry out a comprehensive study of traffic flow around Lekki-Ikoyi-Victoria Island axes, which is part of the initiatives the government is bringing to diffuse vehicular gridlock in major Business Districts in the State.

According to the Governor, the cost of the toll fees for the study period will be borne by the government.

Sanwo-Olu had said the State was undertaking a traffic study with a group of experts to know where the traffic would go when the tollgates were left open for steady movement.

The governor said the undertaking was necessary for the government to take actions that would lead to reduction of traffic on the axes by 50 per cent. The resultant effect, he said, would lead to decrease in travel time and improved productivity.

*He should just make every Wednesday Toll free......right?


  1. see gobe oooooo he should come and look for solution to apapa/oshodi traffic and gridlocks and stop favoring the pple on the island focus on the mainlanders ooh

  2. Africans just know how to make life difficult for themselves...

  3. Stella not only Wednesday o. I think 6am-9am in the morning and 5pm-8pm at nite should be toll free. There is nothing to study on this matter. It is a well known fact that it's the peak of traffic in Lagos.

    1. How about no toll at all?
      What is the essence of that toll other than to milk the people? Havnt they made so much more from the people already?

  4. Looks like Sanwo spirit is being tormented early.🙄
    Gov ambode was removed because he wanted to build a link bridge from Ibeju Lekki expressway to mainland. Somewhere at end of Amity road bus stop, meaning many will wake up face backwards then cross over to mainland without sighting Tinubu's tollgate. Lol.
    Them comot Governor Akinwunmi Ambode sharp sharp. One day God go hear our cries.

  5. It's not just Wednesday. It's been free during peak hours.

  6. Why is that toll gate there? Enriching BAT.
