A Spokesman of National Highway Authority has said that Pindi-Bhattian Toll Plaza was established in 2017, before coming into power of the present Government. Like other motorways, the toll plaza on this motorway (M-4) was set up for motorway users. The toll is used for providing safe and comfortable traveling to the people.
The spokesman said, in 2019, on desire of people, business community and elected representatives, timely relief was provided at M-4. During the last two years, wide ranging campaign regarding E-tolling was run to make people aware about E-tolling.
The spokesman further said, in order to facilitate the people, booths were increased at M-1, M-2 and M-9. Likewise, two new toll booths are being set up at Pindi-Bhattian Toll Plaza so that travelers could be avoided from rush of traffic.
