Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation Ltd (MSRDC) has decided to enforce toll tax on several projects. Road toll tax for the Mumbai-Pune Expressway extended until 2030 instead of the earlier 2019 deadline. The toll will help finance the widening of the expressway to 14 lanes.
There will be an 8 km tunnel and two cable-strayed bridges between Khopoli and Sinhgad institute, along with widening of both the expressway and the old highway. The other projects where toll will be charged are elevated road on Ghodbunder Road and Wakan-Pali-Khopoli road. MSRDC plans to extend the existing toll on the Ghodbunder Road to generate revenue to build a 4 km elevated road.
The other projects where toll will continue to be charged are Thane- Borivili tunnel road, additional bridge on Vashi creek, Mumbai- Nagpur highway and elevated road on Bhiwandi-Kalyan- Shil Phata route.
