Toll gates to return to federal roads – Fashola
The Federal Government has revealed that it has plans to return toll gates to federal roads.
This was communicated by the Minister for Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who stated that there is no law that stops the Federal Government from implementing such.
His words, “There is no reason why we can’t toll, there was a policy of government to abolish tolls or as it where, dismantle toll plaza but there is no law that prohibit tolling in Nigeria today.
We expect to return toll plazas, We have concluded their designs of what they will look like, what materials they will be rebuilt with, what new considerations must go into them.
What we are looking at now and trying to conclude is how the bank end runs.”
He added that there’s consideration by the government to introduce electronic payment instead of payment by cash.
