Come September 5th, motorists will be required to adhere to the toll rates that were announced for the Linstead to Moneague leg of the north-south link of Highway 2000.
They are being given a free ride through the toll for one month, but after that, Class 1 vehicles will pay $200; Class 2 vehicles, $420; and Class 3, $1,000.
The opening ceremony for the new highway took place yesterday at Treadways, St. Catherine, and Minister of Transport, Works and Housing Dr. Omar Davies told journalists that while motorists are being given free access to the roadway for a month, drivers should follow the stipulated guidelines.
He said the Government would be working assiduously to ensure that the other two legs of the project are completed in short order.
Drivers are being asked to exercise caution in order to avoid accidents on the newly open roadway.
