New operator to look after Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway for 9 months
A new company, Skylark Highways Solutions Ltd. appointed by concessionaire of Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway has taken the undertaking of Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway for coming nine months. It is likely to supervise operations and maintenance of about 27 km stretch soon. Collection process of toll at Kherki Dhaula Plaza will be done by it.

"Apart from handling the usual maintenance and operations of the Expressway, the new operator has been entrusted with the task of ratcheting up the toll revenue which currently hovers in the range of Rs 38-39 lakh in the week days," said Raghuraman, the CEO of MCEPL (Millennium City Expressways Pvt Ltd), the concessionaire, according to a TOI report.

Following the business purpose and work, Gurgaon has become the first destination to the people. That's why the number of vehicles is increasing day to day. Nearly 2.5 Lakh vehicles make the path into the city through Expressway daily from Delhi. Apart from this, over fifty thousand vehicles can be seen going through the Kherki Daula toll plaza from Gurgaon to new sectors (58-115) and Manesar.

Now officials expect huge current toll collection revenue. However, this is far from the reality as daily collusion between toll collection agents and defaulters has reduced the collection. Sometimes the agents overlook the tax for the pocket money that causes to revenue deficit.

Following the problems coming in toll collection, the concessionaire hoped that the automatic vehicle classification and counting (AVCC) will reform the condition at toll plaza. The machine is likely to be imported from Austria and will be installed at toll tax in few weeks.

Another radical transformation which will soon come into effect is the re-carpetting of the entire expressway.
