HCMC – After its meeting with numerous parties, the Ministry of Transport on May 24 proposed reducing toll fees at the BOT T2 tollgate on National Highway 91 in Thot Not District, Can Tho City, rather than relocating it.

The Directorate for Roads of Vietnam also asked four localities, including An Giang, Dong Thap and Kien Giang provinces and Can Tho City, and the BOT T2 tollgate investor, to reduce toll fees for vehicles passing through the tollgate.

Additionally, Can Tho-An Giang National Highway 91 Investment JSC, the operator of the tollgate, was asked to prepare to slash toll fees for drivers near the tollgate in Dong Thap and An Giang provinces, along with Can Tho City.

Apart from the fee reductions, the Directorate for Roads of Vietnam assigned the IV road management bureau to examine and identify the types and volume of vehicles passing through the intersection of National Highways 80 and 91, and the intersection of National Highway 80 and Vam Cong Bridge, to find appropriate solutions.

The inspection time is expected to last three days, from May 25 to 27 and the inspection team will report to the directorate on May 28.

Earlier, the Automobile Transport Association of An Giang Province and drivers voiced their objection to the wrong location of the BOT T2 tollgate.

Numerous drivers traveling from An Giang Province through the tollgate stopped their vehicles and argued with toll collectors, causing a traffic snarl on May 24.

Despite the explanations from the traffic police of Can Tho City, these drivers were unwilling to pay their tolls, the local media reported.

The operator of the tollgate was then forced to allow vehicles to pass at no charge, due to the long back-up of traffic.
