“May Day” holiday has passed, people drive travel is still on the highway blocked by the toll station unhappy experience. Parking payment resulting in the problem of highway congestion for a long time, many Internet users have dubbed the highway became a “lying nest” road, public opinion unanimously called on the highway to release free holidays. Experts have pointed out the road name “money” does not name the “public” the With repayment excuse to let yourself go, and makes the public interest long-term let in the regional interests, departmental interests, corporate interests, private interests, a phenomenon that long-standing management blame should be held accountable to the relevant departments and the responsibility of leadership.
toll station has become a “stumbling block”
a lot of people have this experience: car speeding on the highway, suddenly slow down, the long distance charges the station. I saw a long dragon-like car slow crawl to wait for payment. Particularly in the holiday peak travel period, the toll station to become a “stumbling block”, resulting in a very long sections of difficult high speed.“51″ during the holiday just past, the very common. According to reports, at 10 o’clock on the May 1, Shandong Jinan Ring Expressway, Jinan South toll station entrance, a long traffic jam team has lined up the rear of the ramp, foot three or four meters.
toll stations, there are a lot of lead to slow vehicle traffic, affecting the highway traffic efficiency, especially in peak travel holidays, especially, the Investment Advisor in the transportation industry researcher Cai Jianming In an interview with this reporter pointed out that the charges brought by the prevailing lower efficiency and indeed to some extent, increased highway congestion chaos.
toll station has become an “ATM”
highway speed-oriented, due to the toll booths cause congestion is both a waste of public resources, but also damage the public interest. A long time, the community are calling for: national holidays during the abolition of fees.
last month, Vice Minister of Ministry of Transport FENG Zheng-lin said, is studying issues related to major holidays toll roads free of tolls, will be the program for the early implementation after approval. It is understood that currently there are two or three provinces during the Spring Festival expressway toll-free.
holidays toll-free why it is difficult to do? Cai Jianming analysis is that most of China’s highway to take loans to build roads, loan fees, “the mode of construction and operation, collecting tolls repayment of construction costs. Holidays are residents of the peak travel period, the road the number of cars than usual substantial increase in highway charge crossing costs also rose sharply. On holidays for free, then cut off the sources of revenue of local governments and related businesses, damage the economic interests of the stakeholders, so inevitably meet opposition from within.
Shandong provincial supervision department, deputy director of SUN industry pointed out that the “Government loan repayment highway” pay a maximum period shall not exceed 15 years, but the operating highway “toll period can be extended to 25 years, so many “Government loan repayment Highway transformed the variable” sex “as” operating highway, the local government “ATM” and “cash cow”.
“road there are two cases, one is the government finances the construction of the road, this road should be free of tolls, because it is taxpayers’ money. Another private enterprise built. return on investment, this road should charge “. Professor Liu Xiaochuan of Shanghai University of Finance and Public Economics and Management, vice president, told this reporter, whether it is built by the government or the corporate ownership of the road belongs to all, therefore, the private construction of toll-road standards should be lower than the return on investment + + profit “model, the public property in tolls embodiment should not be entirely pure commodity pricing.
and Mid holiday free of charge to solve the congestion problem is a certain reason, because congestion will harm the public interest. But require private companies to build roads in the holidays, all free of charge is not fair, you should ask them to release free of charge when in congestion.
extended charges more serious problem
thus affecting the speed of the highway toll stations caused traffic jams, the state has clearly defined. The toll roads of the People’s Republic of China Article 29 of the Ordinance provides that the number of charges crossing quickly through the needs of the vehicle shall comply with and shall not cause traffic jams. Article 50 stipulates that violation of these regulations, the crossing does not meet the number of vehicles quickly through the need, more than 50,000 yuan and 200,000 yuan fine. This provision not been very good throughout the implementation and execution.
“is actually very simple, the government sent people to draw a line in each toll station, plugging into the line to stop the charges, you can also use high-tech infrared detection, encounter line the police, “Xiao-Chuan Liu pointed out that such a simple thing that no one, mainly because of poor government regulation, the government can be entrusted to a third party to oversee.
experts believe that the holidays you want to waive the road tolls or congestion free policies implemented in the country, the need for mandatory public policy at the national level, otherwise difficult to form the norm of the system can be expected.
Cai Jianming said, in fact, the extended problem is more serious charges. Highway toll, the most important thing is to stop charging immediately after the recovery of investment costs. For example, a highway investment cost of 40 billion yuan, 20 years to recover the cost. Free holidays, the charging time may increase for 25 years. Overall, the welfare of the population has not increased. Therefore, promoting holidays free to implement the best, not the implementation of impact is not large, on this issue, the most important point is that after 20 years to recover the cost must stop charging, but also the road in China. At present there are a lot of domestic highway investment has been recovered, but continued to charges.the share: welcome the , comment I want to Comment the micro Bo recommended today microblogging hot spots (edit: SN002)
