Two more toll plazas in Telangana
Telangana: Two new toll plazas are set to be developed soon in the state after the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) took up the construction works of toll plazas on highways last year.
The new toll plazas will be built near Station Ghanpur on Warangal-Hyderabad route while another on Warangal bypass road. Currently, there are 18 toll plazas in the state and with two new ones, the tally goes up to 20. The existing 18 total plazas are at Kadthal, Korlaphadu, Manoharabad, Muthojipet, Panthangi, Pippalwada, Pullur, Raikal, Rolmamda and Shakhapur.
According to a Regional Officer, NHAI, the new toll plazas will be available by September. The officer said that the new road between Warangal and Hyderabad is nearing completion and once the road became fully operational, people heading to Warangal can pass through it instead of travelling through Jangaon, Aler and Yadadri-Bhongir to cut down the distance.
The new toll plaza near Station Ghanpur will be having six to eight gates with separate entries for FASTag system and cash payments.
