Toll gates still charging fees to some motorists
Motorists were complaining that the Shuituan tollgate is still charging fees despite the government issued a ruling that it would be toll free starting on May 1. Motorists were confused because they were already passing through some of the toll gate without paying.
Toll gates at the Wutong Mountain Tunnel toll gate plus eight others were already toll free, and plans to scrapped the toll gates at the Shuitian and Matian toll gates were supposed to follow. A lot of motorists had to pay the full toll price of 14 yuan just to pass the Shuitian toll gate, a lot of them was complaining that the toll gates were charging and were wondering when will they government step in and remind the toll gates that collecting fees were already scrapped.
The number of vehicles using Shuiguan Expressway has risen recently and has caused traffic congestions during rush hours. One motorist said that sometimes he would pass the tollgate without paying, then in some days he would be charged. He knows that the toll gates fees are already scrapped and he thinks that someone is charging the motorists without proper authority.
Because of this traffic congestions happens because of most of the drivers are refusing to pay the toll fees.
