  1. Welcome to LCC Frequently Asked Questions

    The engineering design the capacity of the road and the suite of services that will be delivered by the project are all designed to work together to improve convenience of road users; reduce journey times and make them more predictable; and improve security in the area. For example in designing a new bridge structure that will enable road users travelling from Lekki to Ikoyi to in future turn directly onto Falomo Bridge instead of first making a left-turn into Adeyemo Alakija Street against the flow of on-coming traffic a key cause of the long tail-backs that are often seen on the Bridge Loop coming off Falomo Bridge will be eliminated. Further traffic decongesting features of the design include designated areas for buses and taxis to set down and pick up passengers and additional lanes to enable vehicles to make U-turns or turns on or off the Expressway at designated points. Services will include vehicle breakdown and recovery traffic management ambulance services security services and Customer Help Desk amongst others.

    A primary objective during the construction period is to keep traffic flowing throughout the period in order to minimize disruption and hardship to road users and other stakeholders in and around the area. A series of measures will be used for these purposes including: * Execution of the more disruptive aspects of our work at night-time. * Construction of new lanes on the verges first where possible so that the existing lanes can be kept open until the new lanes are put into service and the old lanes closed for upgrading. * Utilization of appropriate communication/media channels {e.g radio jingles and newspaper adverts} to inform the public when and where we are working and to propose diversionary routes around congested areas. * Utilization of appropriate road signs to identify were work is being undertaken and how we want road users to conduct themselves. * Deployment of our contractors flag men to work alongside LASTMA officers in guiding and directing traffic along the route. * Coordination with Lagos State Government Ministries and departments.

    Yes! Diversionary routes will help minimize the impact on road users during the construction period and create a more efficient environment in which the construction activities can be conducted.

    Diversionary routes will depend on where the construction work is being undertaken at the time. For example during the Early Works Phase last year when road works were being undertaken between 1004 and Mobil HQ road users wishing to continue after Mobil HQ were diverted into Adetokunbo Ademola Street and then into Bishop Aboyade Cole St bringing them out at Mobil HQ and beyond the works area.

    The first 2Km ( Starting from Falomo Bridge loop to Exxon Mobil ) of the Lekki Toll Road Concession was completed and commemorated on April 2008. Also Traffic lights have been installed at 4 major intersections along this part of the road The next phase of our construction includes * Revamping of the Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue from Falomo Bridge Loop intersection westbound towards Oceanic Bank Corporate Office ( KM 0 - 145 ) . * Expansion of the Exxon - Mobil bridge from 4 lanes to 6 lanes. * Construction of the new 2km 6 lane carriageway and 22 lane tolling booths and Toll Plaza 1 between Exxon Mobil and Lekki 1st roundabout . * Construction of a ramp starting at Caverton Helicopters on Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue directly onto Falomo Bridge to ease up the bottleneck at Adeyemo Alakija Street ( Law School ) intersection . * Clearing of site and earthworks at Toll Plaza 2 after Chevron roundabout

    In general the 1st 6km of road will be expanded to 6 lanes although in some areas such as where additional turning lanes are provided the road width will actually be more than 6 lanes. The road from Km 6 to 23 will be a combination of 4-6 lanes or wider (eg where turning lanes or bus lay-byes are constructed). Beyond Km 23 the road will remain 4 lanes

    Yes. Our plans include expansion of existing roundabouts eg to expand them from 2 to 3 lanes and to include new turning lanes. We also plan to build entirely new roundabouts in some locations. Furthermore designated areas where buses and taxis can set down and pick up passengers will be constructed.

    Funding for the project is being provided principally through a combination of debt and equity sources obtained locally and overseas. Financing is being raised privately by Lekki Concession Company Ltd the Concessionaire and is not open to the public.

    Tolls provide the Concessionaire with the revenues required to recoup the cost of investments service and repay the debt and meet capital and operating costs. All capital regardless of whether it comes from debt or equity sources has a cost associated with it. There would therefore be an impact on the level of tolls whichever source capital is used. Recognizing however that the cost of debt is normally different to that of equity different ratios of debt and equity in the capital structure will have different levels of impact on tolls

    Various waivers consents and undertakings have been applied for from The Federal Government. Eg certain tax exemptions will be granted to Lekki Concession Company Ltd the Concessionaire through the project being formally awarded a Pioneer Certificate. Good support advice and encouragement have been received from various Ministries and Departments of the Federal Government.

    Toll prices will be published in good time before we begin charging the tolls.

    We envisage offering a number of discounts and/or incentives to customers. The structure of discounts that we plan to offer includes frequent user discounts; reduced prices for public transport vehicles; local area discounts for designated areas; and full exemptions for emergency vehicles (eg ambulance services). We will also consider offering special promotions from time-to-time eg to encourage customers to make the most use of our Electronic Toll Collection Systems.

    There will be 3 Toll Plazas in all. The 1st will be located near the Palms Shopping Complex (Km 3); the 2nd near Chevron (Km 13); and the 3rd near Crown Estates (Km 23).

    Security measures will include effective policing routine security patrols and well-maintained street lighting amongst others. Our Customer Help Desk number will also be prominently displayed at convenient locations along the axis in the event that emergency assistance is required.

    The Coastal Defence Works recently undertaken at Bar Beach do not have a direct impact on the expansion and upgrade of the Lekki-Epe Expressway. The timing of the construction of the Coastal Road however is directly dependent on the success of the Coastal Defence Works. This recognizes that some time is required to verify the success of the solution provided by the Works in solving the historical problem of coastal erosion at Bar Beach.

    The fibre optic cables will support the management and transfer of data between the three Toll Plazas.
