Mangaluru: The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) finally announced to merge the Surathkal toll Gate with the Hejamady Toll plaza few days ago. The order will come into effect from December 1 and the toll rates have gone up. The authority has instructed the Udupi Deputy Commissioner Kurma Rao M. to ensure that law and order is not disturbed during toll collection.

The NHAI on Thursday November 24 wrote to the Udupi District Administration regarding the merger of Mukka Surathkal toll with effect from December 1, which will make the toll amount at Hejamady more expensive as expected. The toll collection on the NMP Road Connectivity Road, which was installed at Surathkal by the Highways Authority of India on behalf of IRCON, which carried out the four-lane highway work between Surathkal and B. C. Road, has been merged with the toll gate of a new age company in Hejamady. The duty rate at Surathkal has also been clubbed with Hejamady, the letter stated.

It should be ensured that law and order is not disturbed during toll collection. In case there is any discrepancy in toll collection after the increase in toll rates after the merger of Hejamady, the State Government will have to bear the loss as per the State Government’s agreement with NHAI. All kinds of help, assistance and police protection should be provided by the Udupi District Administration, it stated.

In a letter to the Udupi District Administration, Highways Authority of India Project Manager H. S. Lingegowda, said that it would come into effect from the midnight of December 1.
