BOT tollgate on Provincial Road DT 830 in Long An Province has yet to be operational on May 3 as scheduled for test toll collection, said Nguyen Van Hoc, director of the Transport Department of Long An.

Hoc told the Daily that tolling time has yet been determined by the Long An government as more discussion on toll rates is needed.

Test toll collection was originally slated to begin on May 3 and official collection on May 15.

At a meeting on April 26 between the Long An government, relevant agencies and the developer of DT 830 project, May 18 was chosen to put the tollgate into operation with toll rates ranging from VND30,000 to VND165,000 per time, from VND900,000 to VND4.95 million per month and from VND2.43 million to VND13.365 million per quarter.

Regarding container trucks, tolls depend on their load and drivers who go through two tollgates of DT 830 in the same direction are required to pay once a day.

Hoc said the above rates were previously suggested by the developer and lender banks.

DT 830 running from Highway 1 to Ben Luc and Duc Hoa districts in Long An Province helps facilitate goods transport to industrial parks in Long An. The project jointly invested by Bang Duong Investment-Construction-Trading Co Ltd and Bamboo Capital Group with total investment capital of some VND1,079 billion.
