To use the Nagpur-Mumbai Samruddhi Expressway, you must pay a toll of Rs1.72 per kilometre. Tolls will be charged starting on May 2nd, the first day of operation. On that day, a 210-kilometer stretch of the expressway between Nagpur and Selu Bazar will open.
The state administration previously stated that the 505-kilometer Nagpur-Shirdi stretch would open in May. This is not doable, though, because there is still a lot of work to be done. According to Eknath Shinde, minister for Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC), which is building the road, the road up to Selu Bazar (district Washim) will be opened.
The toll had been approved as per central government policy, according to Anilkumar Gaikwad, MSRDC’s joint managing director. “A motorist will be charged a toll based on the distance travelled on the expressway,” he explained.
MSRDC has built toll plazas at each intersection. Waiphal, near Butibori, has the first plaza. This is right on the freeway. The remaining toll booths are located on service roads. As a result, vehicles can go without stopping.
