NAVI MUMBAI: There is a temporary respite from the new proposed toll booths on Sion-Panvel Road, as the chief minister Prithviraj Chavan has appointed a three-member committee headed by the chief secretary, J S Saharia, to study the reported toll problem on the Kharghar-Kamothe stretch of the road, following protests by Congress and NCP members against the new toll booths.

The Congress MLA from Panvel, Prashant Thakur, who met the CM today morning, told TOI: I am happy with the outcome of our meeting with the chief minister, who has assured us that he too is against the setting of a new toll plaza, which is within 15 km from the existed toll plaza at Vashi. He appreciated my concern for the local residents of Panvel, New Panvel, Kamothe, Kalamboli and Kharghar who will end up paying toll daily if the new booths have to be set up on Sion-Panvel road.''

Thakur added that he is confident that the committee headed by the chief secretary Saharia will take a proper decision and dismiss the proposed toll plaza altogether.

On Friday, the Congress and NCP workers had staged a powerful protest on the Sion-Panvel road to demand the cancellation of the upcoming toll plaza. The entire road was blocked for over 90 minutes till the CM personally intervened and assured the agitators that he will take a decision on this toll issue.

In the meeting, CM Chavan also informed Thakur that the earlier toll proposal on this road by MSRDC in 2006 was rejected by the state government. However, in 2009 the PWD proposed the setting up of the toll plaza on this 23 km long road.
