Eti-Osa -Lekki Expressway tolls begin tomorrow; what are your thoughts?


lekki-eti-osa-tollThe controversial Eti-Osa Lekki Expressway tolls will begin operations tomorrow. The decision to commence tolling on the 49 kilometre- road was announced by LCC Managing Director, Mr Opuiyo Oforiokuma on December 1.

According to Mr Opuiyo Oforiokuma,  the company has provided alternative routes for those who want to by-pass the Admiralty Circle Plaza. Such motorists should veer off the expressway before the plaza into Yesufu Abiodun Oniru Road down to City of David Church and Market back unto the expressway, he said.

Already taxi drivers along the axis have started “adjusting” their fares in anticipation for the increased cost the toll will add to their operations.

What do you think of the Eti-Osa Lekky Expressway tolls? Are they exploitative or a necessary tool for development?
