Southern Expressway collects Rs.1 mn within 12 hours
The newly opened Southern expressway was used by more than 4,530 vehicles within 12 hours of its opening, said its operations director P.D.K. Bandara.
Since its opening yesterday (Nov. 27), an income of Rs. one million was earned through toll charges from 6.00 pm to 6.00 am, he said.
Some of the vehicles’ engine, not up to standards, overheated due to high speed, said Mr. Bandara.
