Telangana: Traffic jam at toll plazas on NH 65 in view of FASTag facility...
Yadadri Bhongir: Vehicles piled up for more than one kilometer at Panthangi toll plaza in Choutuppal mandal in the district in view of FASTag facility coming into force from Sunday..
The vehicles lined up at Panthangi toll plaza on both sides as not many drivers were aware of the new system of automatic payment of toll fee. With the vehicles without FASTag, moved into the lanes exclusively meant for the vehicles with FASTag, there were traffic jams, and it became a problem for the staff to regulate the traffic. The FASTag system uses radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to enable automatic payment of the toll fee and faster movement of vehicles through the booths. Out of 16 toll entries, eight entries were allocated for the vehicles, which have FASTags and four for manual collection of toll fee. Double toll fee was collected from the non-FASTage vehicles, which have entered into the lanes of entries exclusively for FASTag vehicles. Traffic jam was also witnessed at Korlapahad toll plaza in Kethepally mandal in Nalgonda district due to the same reason. Those who don’t have FASTag, also were stopping their vehicles at the special counter set up near Korlapahad toll plaza for issuance of FASTag. The haphazard stopping also affected the traffic flow on National Highway 65. When a technical problem arose in scanning of FASTag stickers at Korlaphad toll plaza in the beginning, the staff collected toll till the system was corrected by afternoon..
