Thang Long-Noi Bai road toll may increase
HA NOI (VNS)— A draft circular from the Ministry of Finance proposes that the road fee for vehicles passing through the toll gate of the North Thang Long – Noi Bai Road be increased about 1.5 times from the current level, which are VND10,000-120,000 (US$0.4-5.7) depending on the vehicle's loading capacity.
In June this year, the Viet Nam Road Administration approved the removal of 14 toll booths in order to avoid overlapping toll collections once the road maintenance fund is established in 2013. The North Thang Long – Noi Bai toll gate is one of them.
According to Viet Nam Automobile Transport Association chairman Nguyen Manh Hung, non-BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) toll gates, including that of North Thang Long – Noi Bai, would be removed after 2013. — VNS
