Gur­gaon: Come De­cem­ber 15, mo­torists will have to pay to drive on the Kundli-Mane­sar-Pal­wal (KMP) Ex­press­way. The newly in­au­gu­rated ex­press­way will have a closed tolling sys­tem — mean­ing com­muters will have to pay only for the dis­tance they will travel along the thor­ough­fare cross­ing Gur­gaon.

Mo­torists will be is­sued a ticket when they en­ter the ex­press­way through any of the 10 en­try-exit points along the 135.6km-long stretch be­tween Pal­wal and Kundli. They will have to pro­duce the ticket at the exit point and pay toll for the dis­tance trav­elled on the ex­press­way. A com­muter will be is­sued a ticket when it en­ters the ex­press­way through any of the 10 en­try-exit points along the 135.6km-long stretch be­tween Pal­wal and Kundli. He will have to pro­duce the ticket while leav­ing the ex­press­way and pay toll as per the dis­tance cov­ered on the ex­press­way.

A pri­vate com­pany has been roped in for set­ting up nec­es­sary in­fra­struc­ture — boom bar­ri­ers and booths — and col­lect­ing toll at ev­ery en­try-exit point as per the rates fixed by the Haryana State In­dus­trial and In­fra­struc­ture De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (HSIIDC).

Cars will be charged at Rs 1.35/km, light mo­tor ve­hi­cles Rs 2.18/km, while trucks and buses will be taxed at Rs 4.98/km. There­fore, a car drive be­tween Kundli and Mane­sar will cost around Rs 116. Sim­i­larly, one driv­ing a light mo­tor ve­hi­cle will have to pay Rs 187 for the same dis­tance.

“The toll col­lec­tion will start next Satur­day. All booths and bar­ri­ers will in place by then,” said an HSIIDC of­fi­cial. Two-wheel­ers are not al­lowed on the ex­press­way, and a biker won’t get any in­sur­ance or other ben­e­fits in case of an ac­ci­dent on the high-speed stretch.
