Byndoor: The Heddari Horata Samithi will hold a 'Toll Chalo' campaign on October 30 demanding that toll collection at Shiroor toll plaza should commence only after the completion of the work on service road and link road. The protest is being planned as the toll plaza is being given final touches even though work on the service roads are yet to be completed. Contractor IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd will start collecting the toll shortly. Samithi President Sathish Shetty has demanded that just like in the case of Sasthan toll plaza, concession should be given for local vehicles at Shiroor Further, bus shelters should be constructed on the stretch between Kundapur and Shiroor of the national highway, they demanded. A memorandum seeking concession from toll collection to local vehicles within 10-km radius of the toll plaza has already submitted a memorandum to NHAI officials and Member of Parliament. In fact, in a meeting, the MP had directed the officials not to start toll collection till the service roads were completed. However, no efforts have been made to complete the service road. Instead, the toll plaza is being given final touches, they added.
