Bengaluru: NHAI To Start Collecting Toll On STRR’s Dobbspet-Doddaballapur Stretch From June 14

The Bengaluru Satellite Town Ring Road (STRR) is a 288-km stretch that is being constructed to connect Bengaluru with neighbouring towns such as Dobbspet, Devanahalli, Hoskote, and Ramanagara. The construction of the Dobbspet-Doddaballapur stretch has helped decongest areas in Bengaluru that are often affected by heavy traffic. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has announced that toll collection will start on the 42-km-long stretch on June 14. Toll charges will apply to all personal and commercial vehicles, while two-wheelers are exempt. Commuters using the ring road of Dobbspet-Hoskote will be charged Rs 185 for single journeys and Rs 275 for roundtrips. The toll plaza will scan vehicle number plates and weight, and those paying through FastTag will have the barriers automatically open. The completion of the first stretch of the STRR project has helped ease traffic congestion in Bengaluru, with around 15,000 to 20,000 vehicles using the road daily. The project director of NHAI stated that the opening of the ring road has diverted traffic from Tumakuru Road to ease congestion in the city.
