Truckers who use the 407 Express Toll Route north of
Toronto, Canada, will see a toll increase on Feb. 1.
According to Canadian media reports, during peak hours, the
rate for single-unit trucks will increase by about 3 cents a kilometer to more
than 35 cents.
The rate for multiple-unit trucks will jump about 4 cents to
almost 53 cents a kilometer.
Spanish company, Cintra, and the Australian company, Macquarie Infrastructure
Group, two of the companies that operate the toll road, said the increases are
needed to pay for ongoing improvements, including new lanes.
