Probably not, no. The existing LGPLv3 licensed code remains LGPLv3 licensed, and as a requirement
of the LGPLv3 the new code added to it has to be made available under the LGPLv3 as well.
As a consequence, the resulting modified work will be licensed under LGPLv3. The Apache code
that was added remains under the Apache license too (which is OK since there is no conflict
between the terms of the AL and LGPLv3).
