HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam Infrastructure Development and Finance Investment Joint Stock Company (VIDIFI) has submitted to the Ministry of Transport a proposal to delay increasing toll on the Hà Nội-Hải Phòng Expressway.
At present, toll is charged at VNĐ2,000 (9 US cents) per kilometre for each vehicle. As scheduled, the fee will be four per cent higher than the current toll from April 2017.
However, the company proposed to halt the increase to support businesses providing transport service following Government decision No 35/NĐ-CP issued in May 2016, the company said.
The 105km expressway, running through the four cities and provinces of Hà Nội, Hưng Yên, Hải Dương and Hải Phòng, began charging toll from vehicle drivers in December 2015.
The expressway, designed with six lanes, allowing vehicles to travel at 60-120km per hour, is believed to be the most modern expressway in the country. — VNS
