Lagos State governor Akinwunmi Ambode has declared that tolls will no longer be collected at the second toll point on the Lekki-Epe Expressway.
Ambode announced the news during an interactive session with journalists in Lagos on Sunday, Punch reports.
He further stated:
“We must start thinking of the future concerning that road. We said we will have an International Airport in Epe, and an Export Processing Zone in Lekki and a Deep Seaport also in Lekki.
Should we not start thinking about how we will improve and create a 10-lane road between Ikorodu, Itoikin, Epe and Ijebu Ode so that people can go out from there? There is no point constructing the road, paying tolls and in five years’ time, the road is gone.”
