the project was expanded to include the construction of the 20km costal road on the lekki peninsular which will serve as an alternative road.
the project was reportedly designed to deliver essential road infrastructure and services along the lekki peninsular of lagos.
since the inception of the project, the state government and the lekki concession company have been battling civil rights activists and local residents.
the residents and activists organised a protest requesting the lagos state government to stop the collection of toll fees at the toll gate.
