considering its huge costs toll plazas would have been the only way to make money back from it unless goverment purchased all the land around the roads and can sell them as commercial plots.

Are you kidding me? What makes you believe we have so much business sense in our country? Corruption sense yes we do in abundance….we have wasted millions of dollars worth of foreign aid because we couldn’t come with a good plan to use it…in every field…roads, public transportation (metros)…educations and list goes on and on

that would not kill the industry.its only approx 15 KM of the total road along which the industries are built! and they have constructed wide enough service roads that can be used by heave vehicles also!

As much as i hate to say toll tax will generate revenue and will help run ring road operation smoothly though we can build leisure parks or theme parks around ring road to capitalize it more. Advertisement billboard can help too....

to be honest i think toll plazas should be introduced even though i hate it we need every source of revenue before the country goes bankrupt, plus considering the massive costs of this road money needs to be generated for other projects as well.
