 FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SET TO RE-INTRODUCE TOLL GATES ON FEDERAL HIGH WAYS

Power, Works and Housing Minister, BABATUNDE FASHOLA, says arrangements have been concluded to reintroduce toll gates in 38 points across the country.
The minister said that the reintroduction of the toll gates by the Federal Government will be consummated after completion of major highways.
The toll gates are to be managed by the private sector,  FASHOLA told members of the Senate Committee on Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) when he appeared before them in Abuja yesterday.
He told the lawmakers of plans by the government to design software for the monitoring of vehicles passing through the roads.

According to him, road users would be able to pay toll through their phones, explaining that the toll collected would be used for maintenance of the highways.
