    This hope I am sure will be shortlived as this seems to be one of the poll tricks keeping in mind the forthcoming assembly elections. It will be worth seeing if it continues after the polls too depending upon who wins.

    However the logic to levy toll on the road is simply idiotic.

    So very true, precisely what I thought about this sudden change of heart of these politicians. Is this even legal, given that many of these toll booths are supposedly yet to recover huge sums. The courts should take suo-motto cognizance of such tricks and warn and humiliate the government. Or maybe the EC should regulate more such marketing gimmicks via some tighter regulations pre-election.

    The whole concept of BOT is not bad at all. But what can be done about the corruption in awarding, building and operating new infrastructure projects. Surely most of us know how deep rooted this problem is.

    I was laughing when I read that the party which awarded the road development faced resistance for toll levy from its very own party people. Such irony. Now the state govt want somebody else to foot the bill, infact the cost is being forced upon the state utility.

    Has anyone travelled on the road? Hows the road surface? Like the rest of the roads wavy or smooth?

    Yes, even I also think that all these are political gimmicks. And as stated by asimpleson, some steps should be taken by EC to regulate the doles especially given before elections and withdrawn after that.

    I have travelled on these roads quite frequently, since its construction days. Work done is quite good. In some places in this stretch there are 10 lanes!! All cement roads not much of undulation. Supernova just glides over it. :)
