According to latest developments, the National Highway Association (NHA) has decided to increase the toll tax for the M2 Motorway.
The toll tax has been increased by 10 percent or approximately 62 rupees from the previous rates.
It is worth pointing out that the NHA did not give any prior notification regarding this price hike.
As per the details, here the increased toll taxes:
|Type||Previous Tax||New Tax|
|Cars and Jeeps||Rs. 680||Rs. 750|
|Trucks||Rs. 2980||Rs. 3278|
|22-Wheeler||Rs. 4150||Rs. 4213|
The passengers who travel on the M2 Motorway for Islamabad-Lahore or Lahore-Islamabad via buses will now have to pay Rs. 2290.
Responding to the matter, the NHA claimed that Frontier Works Operations (FWO) reserve the right to increase the prices by 10 percent every year.
However, in the contract that was signed back in 2014, the NHA is bound to give a public notification regarding any change in their policies, prices or anything similar.
