    Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway set to implement GPS-based tolling system

    Charge motorists based only on the specific distance traveled on highway

    Automated toll collection without requiring vehicles to come to a stop

The Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway is set to implement a GPS-based tolling system, aiming to alleviate traffic congestion and accurately charge motorists based on the specific distance traveled on the highways.

Similarly, the Delhi-Jaipur highway (NH-48) is slated to adopt the GPS-based tolling system in the near future. These two expressways will pioneer the integration of this advanced tolling technology.

Nitin Gadkari, the Minister of Road Transport and Highways, revealed the government’s commitment to embracing innovative technologies, including GPS-based toll systems, as a replacement for traditional toll plazas nationwide. Gadkari announced plans to roll out the GPS satellite-based toll collection across the country by March of the coming year.

Emphasizing the government’s pursuit of efficient toll collection methods, Gadkari mentioned two pilot projects involving automatic number plate recognition systems, which utilize automatic number plate reader cameras. These projects aim to facilitate automated toll collection without requiring vehicles to come to a stop.

Highlighting the positive impact of FASTags, introduced during the 2020-21 and 2021-22 periods, Gadkari noted a significant reduction in average waiting times at toll plazas—from 8 minutes in 2018-19 to a mere 47 seconds. While improvements have been evident, particularly in locations near cities, challenges persist, especially in densely-populated towns, leading to delays at toll plazas during peak hours.
