Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development George Mlilo has revealed that the government will be establishing five new tollgates by mid-October. This will leave five tollgates outstanding from a list approved by the government in 2015. Said Mlilo,
We are now working on connecting the tollgates to the main system and this we will start doing (this) week. We are putting finishing touches such as lighting, rumble strips; and we expect the five tollgates to start operating mid-October . . . The remaining five tollgates will be done according to Government directives as some of the toll gates are on highways such as Beitbridge-Harare-Chirundu, therefore we will work on them as we go.
The five new toll gates will be located at Magamba along the Chivhu-Nyazura Road, Collen Bawn in Triangle, Mapfurudzi (Mt Darwin), Lothian (Roy Shops in Masvingo) and Triangle.
