The authorities involved hope that the toll gates will limit traffic congestion at payment points as about 200 vehicles will be expected to go through a toll per hour. With exception to Edea and Nkometou (around Yaoundé from the West) toll gates, each payment point will have 2×2 lanes (2 lanes each way) measuring about 22.4 meters with a width of 2×1.5meters with two walk-ways for pedestrians. The Edea and Nkometou toll gates with their heavy volume of traffic shall be 2×3 lanes, 32.80meters long and 2×1.5meters wide. The platform itself shall have a length of 50 meters permitting vehicles with various heights to go through, according to the plan.
