Concessionaire urges motorists to brace up for cashless transaction
To encourage the Federal Government’s cashless policies across board and ease traffic congestion, Lekki Concession Company Limited (LCC), concessionaire of the Eti-Osa Lekki-Epe Expressway and the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge Toll Plaza, will commence cashless toll collection at the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge Toll Plaza from January 2020.
Managing Director/CEO of LCC, Yomi Omomuwasan, who stated this yesterday said the new upgrade is to enhance and modernise service delivery at the tolls. However, he said motorists could still use both cash and electronic devices for passages at the Admiralty Circle Toll Plaza. He urged motorists to obtain toll devices for ease of passage and to eliminate the issue of change in the tollbooths. According to him, a wide array of options has been made available to customers and road users to substitute for the current cash transactions.
“Motorists can obtain free and discounted eTag devices, prepaid cards or payment vouchers for their immediate use prior to the kick off date. Road users our LCC mobile app where customers can register for toll devices, top-up their account, check their balance and view the statement of account. ”
The app can be downloaded from the Google play store or iOS for immediate sign-up on the electronic devices. Recently, LCC carried out an upgrade of its tolling systems following which customers’ toll accounts were merged into a single account. Therefore, a single device can now be used for passages at both toll plazas”, he said.
