More on the new Tollroad

I posted the other day about the new toll road between Silverdale and Puhoi and what a fantastic road it is.

I also mentioned the poor suckers lined up to pay the toll at either end and scratched my head in wonder.

Now I had clean forgottten to pay the toll and thought bugger, it was only last Friday, if the three days is calndar then I’m screwed but if it is working days then I’m sweet so i logged onto the website, selected pay toll, entered my vehicle rego and was presented a list of the trips, all in about 30 seconds, another 30 seconds later it was all paid for and an email receipt landed in my inbox.

No mess, no fuss, no hassle.

I ask though why anyone would stop at the roadside kiosk, queue with other fools, pop $2 into the machine, wait for a receipt, then get back in the car and rejoin the traffic?

Surely the whole idea of a tollroad is to speed up your trip not stop and wait for other fools.

Anyway, my bloggers test of the system is now complete and I rate it 10 out of 10.
