Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared Thursday July 11, a toll free day during the morning and evening peak hours for vehicles plying the Lekki and Admiralty toll plaza in Lekki and Ikoyi areas of the state.
Sanwo-Olu’s gesture was to ease the perennial gridlock and flood that have characterized the areas in recent times.
The governor stated this while addressing State House Correspondents after a tour of the Victoria Island-Lekki-Ajah axis over traffic gridlock and flooding issues.
The purpose, he said, is for doing traffic situation analysis in the area to find solutions to the issue of traffic gridlock in the area.
He added that the toll- free period will be in the morning and evening peak hours, between 6.30am -9.30am and 4.30pm -8.00pm
