Toll plazas run by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will soon have kiosks selling drinking water, tea/coffee, and packaged food for the convenience of highways users, the authority yesterday said.
Termed as Highway Nest (Mini), these kiosks are under construction on both up-side and down-side at all 372 NH run toll plazas. These kiosks are being built on 10mx20 m paved platforms about 200-250 meters from the toll plaza and toilet facilities for ladies/gents and physically challenged persons are also available at these sites, the statement said.
“Two Highway Nests (Mini) have been inaugurated already – one at Narayanpura toll plaza on NH-76 on Udaipur-Chittorgarh-Kota route under Regional Office, Jaipur and another at Hyderabad-Vijayawada section of NH-65, Korlapahad toll plazas at km 118.250 (TP-2) under RO Hyderabad,” ministry of NHAI said in a statement.
Efforts are being made to have the Highway Nest (Mini) in place on all the remaining toll plazas by the end of March 2018, it added.
