Toll plaza at Dahisar not to close down: MEP Infra

“These messages are being circulated by certain vested interests and the Dahisar toll plaza is not being closed down,” the company said in a release here.
The reports had asked the people to stop paying toll as the plaza had been closed, the company release said.
However, the company clarified that there was no such move to close down and that it was collecting the toll at all the entry points on the directives of Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation for 16 years from November 2010.
