Shanghai set for regional ETC?

Above: Electronic tolling will supplement traditional manual tolls in Shanghai before the end of the year
 
Shanghai traffic officials say non-stop electronic toll collection (ETC) systems will be deployed on certain channels at every highway toll station in Shanghai by end of this year. They are in discussions with provinces in the Yangtze River Delta region to establish a network throughout the region by the end of next year.

With the electronic toll system from Shanghai Changjiang Computer (Group), drivers will no longer have to keep stopping at every highway toll station within the Yangtze River Delta region to hand in their fees. With a small IC card attached to the cars, the modified electronic toll collection system on toll stations will automatically collect cars’ tolls as they pass by.

Officials claims the toll system could reduce the time spent at the toll stations to a few seconds, greatly boosting the efficiency of highways and saving time.

Though toll stations will be transformed by the new system, there are no plans yet to remove the traditional manual pay booths. Drivers will be able to choose between the new electronic system and the traditional one and there will be no difference in fees.
