Sanwo-Olu opens Lekki-Ikoyi, Admiralty bridges for free passage


Motorists in Lagos are to enjoy six hours of toll-free ride on the popular Admiralty and Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge tollgates on Thursday, July 11.

The state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, announced this on Wednesday while undertaking a tour of traffic
prone areas within the Victoria Island-Lekki axis, with the aim to finding a lasting solution.

According to Sanwo-Olu, who briefed journalists at the end of the tour, the essence of opening the two tollgates tomorrow between 6:30 and 9:30am as well as 4:30 and 8:00pm is to enable the government and its consultants do the traffic analysis on the Lekki-Ajah to determine the best solution to the intractable gridlocks around that axis.

He said the proposed solutions might involve reducing the roundabout next to the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge or knocking it off entirely, as it has been discovered to be too wide and contributing to the gridlock in that area.
