The Roads Fund Administration (RFA) has disclosed both the Chingeni toll plaza in Ntcheu and Kalinyeke tollgate in Dedza along the Lilongwe-Blantyre M1 road have generated a combined 4.2 billion kwacha as of 31 December, 2022 over a year the country commenced road tolling in November 2021.
Speaking to Malawi Freedom Network Online Wednesday, RFA spokesperson, Masauko Mngwaluko has attributed this performance to compliance of motorists in embracing road tolling.
Governance commentator, Willy Kambwandira says it is high time the M1 road,which is in bad shape, started benefiting from the toll funds now.
According to previous projections from the RFA before the toll fees were revised, the two facilities were expected to be raising about five billion kwacha annually.
