HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Transport has agreed to reduce the toll for vehicles using the BOT (Build-Operation-Transfer) bypass in Biên Hòa City of the southern province of Đồng Nai.
This decision was taken on Sunday following a proposal by the Directorate for Roads of Việt Nam. The toll would be reduced by 20 per cent, as compared to the current rate.
Also, vehicles whose owners have residential registration books in the neighbouring areas of the BOT road would be offered the toll reduction.
The local government was responsible to make lists of the vehicle owners.
Four communes of Trung Hòa, Tây Hòa, Đông Hòa and Hưng Thịnh of Trảng Bom District with a total of 398 vehicles owned by 317 people will benefit from the toll reduction.
The toll tax reduction and exemption will begin from November this year. — VNS
