The Mozambican government has approved a decree for the fixing of toll rates at bridge crossings country-wide, a spokesman for the Mozambican cabinet said.
“The regulation updates the mechanisms for fixing and collecting toll rates at bridge crossings, and applies to the national road network for motor vehicles,” explained Augusto de Sousa Fernando.
According to the Mozambican government spokesman, the updating of the fees aims to ensure the maintenance of the infrastructure. “What is established in the decree is that the maintenance of infrastructure must be paid for by the [toll] fees, which will also help in road expansion programmes,” he added.
De Sousa Fernando said that the new toll fees would be published in the coming days and would take into account the circumstances of people living in the vicinity of bridges.
“The intention is to ensure that people who live near tolls do not pay a very high amount because they constantly use these infrastructures,” de Sousa Fernando concluded.Source: Lusa
