Following the scheduled commencement of electronic payment at the Lekki-Ikoyi toll gate come January 1, 2020, the Lekki Concession Company Limited (LCCL) has announced a 100% increment in the fees.

This was disclosed by Yomi Omomuwasan, LCCL Managing Director, at a press briefing in Lagos on Tuesday, December 24, 2019. According to him, the increment was due to the manual to digital transition. It will enable the company to offer excellent services in sustaining the new development.

Going by the new payment rates, motorists who were paying ₦300 for smaller vehicles will now have to pay ₦600, and motorists who were paying ₦400 for Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV) will now have to pay ₦800.

Motorists are advised to be ready for the digital mode of payment by getting their payment vouchers, e-tags, contactless cards or prepaid cards before the kick-off day. No motorist will be allowed to pass through using manual payment.
