Lekki Toll Review: No Increase in Transport Fare — NURTW
Following the announcement of the toll review at the Admiralty Circle Plaza and the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge Plaza by the Lekki Concession Company, LCC, the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Jakande, Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State has assured residents and commuters on the Eti-Osa/Lekki-Epe Expressway that there will be no fare increase as a result of the new tariffs which take effect on Thursday, February 1, 2018.
According to the Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Jakande, Eti-Osa, Alhaji Taofeek Oluwa, it was encouraging that LCC carried the Union along as one of the critical stakeholders consulted during the engagement process for the toll review which resulted in the minimal increase in tariff charged branded commercial buses. From February 1, branded commercial buses popularly called ‘Danfo’ which previously paid N80,00 would be paying N100.00 (One Hundred Naira) for cash payments and N90.00 (Ninety Naira) for e-Tag payments.
Speaking further, Alhaji Oluwa said, "As long as LCC honours its agreement of our mutual understanding at the stakeholders' meeting, we can confidently support LCC by assuring that commuters will not suffer any increase in the fare paid to board branded commercial buses coming into or going out of Eti-Osa/Lekki-Epe Expressway. The NURTW is happy to endorse the toll fare review”, Alhaji Oluwa noted.
This statement was corroborated by one another NURTW Jakande Eti-Osa official, Alhaji Quadri Adesokan, who stated that LCC has promised to improve the standards of the roads for the safety of passengers. “We have heard the concerns of the LCC and have agreed to support them because they have promised us to maintain the roads. A large number of our buses are using the e-tag which affords us unhindered entry and return from Lekki-Epe Expressway”.
We need the support of well meaning Lagosian's for this toll review for sustained development and maintenance of roads and security along the Lekki Toll axis.
