Human-staffed toll booths are to be replaced with a cashless electronic toll system on four major freeways on the eve of Norouz, the Iranian New Year and a major holiday season.
The move is part of a project of the Ministry of Roads. If it produces the desired results, the automated toll system will be implemented throughout the country.
A deputy with Iran Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization, Khodadad Moqbeli, told ISNA the Tehran-Saveh, Tehran-Qom, Qazvin-Rasht, and Qazvin-Zanjan highways will be equipped with the Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system.
Similar projects have been tested on several freeways over the past few years, Moqbeli said. ETC will speed up toll collection on roads.
