Plans are on track in Iran to replace human-staffed toll booths with a smart and cashless Electronic Toll Collection system on 10 major freeways, a deputy roads minister said.
Hossein Mirshafiei is also quoted on the ministry’s website, “The ETC system, which was launched on four major freeways on the eve of Norouz [the Iranian New Year that started on March 21], has delivered satisfactory results. Failings of the system have been addressed and it will be used on 10 more freeways.”
Over the past few months and following the launch, six million drivers have paid toll fees through the smart system.
