PWD Decides to Install Sensors in Vehicles for Auto-Payment on Toll Nakas

The public works department will introduce an experimental model of the self-payment sensors on toll nakas in the state. The toll workers on the highways have been advised to establish the new system to enable trouble-free activities and thus saving manual workforce and time.

According to Chhagan Bhujbal, public works department minister, the model scheme will be introduced on the Pune-Ahmednagar-Aurangabad-Jalna road and will be operative at the earliest. He stated that the toll operators are directed to install the sensors soon and the system implementation will be under their management.

The minister explained that the system will be operated on a pre-paid basis and the sensors installed on the vehicles will facilitate the operators to debit the toll amount directly from the account of the vehicle owners. He also added that the vehicles having the sensors integrated in it will be permitted to pass the toll gates without the necessity of waiting in the queue thus aiding the toll operators to clear off the traffic quickly.

The PWD department thus require only less workforce at the toll nakas and it was stated that the sensor system in vehicles have already been implemented in the developed countries and was successfully established in lessening the operations at the highways reducing traffic at the toll zones.
