Mangaluru, Dec 1: Surathkal toll gate is closed from the midnight of November 30. However, decision is not yet taken on revising the toll charges at Hejmady toll gate.
The government had informed that Hejmady toll fee will be revised to accommodate Surathkal toll gate fee from December 1. However, according to latest reports, no instructions are given to merge the toll gates. So the toll charges at Hejmady will continue to remain as before.

Sources at Navyug toll plaza said, “We do not have any information with regards to agreement of any sort between Hejmany Navyug toll and NHAI. We have not received any communication to this extent from our company superiors. So the toll charges at Hejmady will remain the same from December 1.”
Public has vehemently opposed the proposed the increase in the toll fee of Hejmady after the closure of Surathkal toll gate.
