In a major relief to commuters travelling frequently between Parshivani and Ramtek, the toll plaza near Mansar on Nagpur-Jabalpur highway would be shifted to Khumari from June 1.
At present, commuters had to pay toll plaza for a journey of just four kilometres. Locals of both the towns have been demanding the State government to remove the toll plaza, which was situated three kilometres from Mansar.
The toll plaza was near Amdi T-Point. One of the roads connect to Ramtek while other to Parshivani from the T-point. Now, the toll plaza would be shifted to Khumari village, some 15 kilometres from Mansar.
The regional general manager of National Highway Authorities of India (NHAI) M Chandrashekhar said the toll plaza at Khumari would become operational from June 1. Now, the toll plaza would be 60-kilometre from Nagpur. Currently, it is situated 15-kilometre from the city.
