Toll collection begins at Suratkal Toll Plaza

The Toll Plaza has been in the eye of a storm since long  mainly due to the objections raised by many to the toll collection on the grounds that it was not proper to collect toll before providing basic amenities.

Here it is worth mentioning  that the Congress led by local Legislator BA Moidin Bawa, Youth Congress President Mithun Rai and MLC Ivan D’Souza had  even staged a protest in September against toll collection. Moreover, the complaint that the toll plaza was constructed in an unscientific manner was justified when a heavy truck hit against the toll gate following which a portion of its roofing had come crashing down recently.

Earlier on August 7, the Suratkal Nagarika Samithi which has been fighting against the toll gate, received a major setback when  the High Court dismissed its petition against the construction of the toll gate.
