Lekki Concession Company (LCC) has flagged off its cashless policy at the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge in Lagos State on January 1, 2020.


Speaking with Nigeria Info FM correspondent, Goodnews Ndukwe, the MD/CEO, LCC Mr. Yomi Omomuwasan said that the company would no longer accept cash payment at the toll plaza, due to its recent upgrade.


He added that the company has provided different registration points for road users who are yet to register or receive their card.


Some road users faulted the speedy implementation of the cashless toll policy, while others advised for the payment to be included in their annual car registration.


Yet, Omomuwasan commended the turn-out of those who embraced the registration and showed up on time to register.


"Response time has been very impressive," he said. "Motorists are approaching the toll gates with their e-tags, vouchers and other electronic payment means. There is a long line of registrants; people who are coming in daily to register. 


"We have registration point at the foot of the bridge, another one at Admiralty Circle, we also have another one at conservation Toll Centre, and another one outside our company.


To get registered, applicants need vehicle license of the car or proof of ownership, drivers license, voters card, and international passport. Applicants will also fill forms and pay a minimum of two thousand naira each, although they can later pay with ease using Quickteller transfers, bank or any other electronic payment means.


One car attracts payment of at least two thousand naira, four cars eight thousand naira, and five thousand naira for five cars. To continue managing their accounts, users can download the LCC mobile app.


If a motorist runs into any problem or you need help, you can call the following Toll-free line 08002255522.


Omowuwasan believes the cashless policy will ensure traffic management and reduce congestion around the toll plaza.
