We have concluded designs for return of tolls ― Fashola

The Federal Government has concluded designs for the return of toll plazas on Federal roads, Minister of Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola has said.

Fashola disclosed this while briefing State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.Let me just clarify this impression about toll gates; there is no reason why we cannot toll; there is no reason.

“There was a policy of the government to abolish tolls; to dismantle toll plazas but there is no law that prohibits tolls in Nigeria today.The minister said that, though the government dismantled toll plazas in the past, there was no law abolishing tollsWhat we are looking at now and trying to conclude is how the back-end runs and that is important because we want to limit significantly if not totally eliminate cash at the plazas while ensuring that electronic devices that are being used do not impede rapid movement.We expect to return toll plazas; we have concluded their designs; of what they will look like; what material they will be built with; what new considerations must go into them.
