Tolls coming to Hwy. 407 extension on Feb. 1

The free ride is coming to an end for users of the new section of Highway 407 and Highway 412 east of Toronto.

The new Highway 407 runs eastward from Brock Road in Pickering to Harmony Road in Oshawa, while Highway 412 connects Highway 407 to the 401.

The highways opened last June and customers were able to travel free of charge while the tolling infrastructure was being installed and calibrated.

Motorists can use the same transponder that is used to drive on the privately operated Highway 407 ETR (Express Toll Route), but the revenue will go to help fund infrastructure and transit projects across the province.

Drivers will use one transponder and receive one invoice, making the tolling process seamless, the province said.

The government says the tolls will be lower than those on Highway 407 ETR.
