Drivers to Save Money as Toll Fees are Removed

Drivers to Save Money as Toll Fees are RemovedDrivers will now be able to save 9 yuan per trip when traveling between downtown Shenzhen to Guanlan in Longhua New Area after tolls were removed on the Meiguan Expressway. In a section that linked Guanlan with Meilin Checkpoint in Futian includes five tollgates which ended in collecting tolls thus saving drivers 9 yuan in fees but tolls for the 5.4 section between Liguang Flyover and Dongguan remains in effect.

Driver will need to use paper cards until the end of this year after a tollgate will open near the south of Liguang Flyover which is an interchange for the Outer Ring Expressway and Meiguan Expressway. As the toll fees are removed, Meiguan Expressway will then be turned into a urban trunk road with a speed limit below 80 kilometers an hour.

Police are advising commuters to avoid the expressway during rush hours to reduce congestion. Back in January the city government has agreed to pay the expressway’s operator 2.7 billion yuan to buy back the operations of the expressway. Also by canceling tolls local government hopes that the economy in the Longhua New Area will be stimulated.
