Highway toll revenues up nearly 11 percent

Date Posted: 2002-04-09

Japan Highway Traffic Corp., a public corporation that administers the nation’s freeways reports that the revenues from Okinawa Expressway connecting Naha and Nago, were up 10.7 percent in fiscal 2001 from fiscal 2000.

The corporation says that the increase is mostly due to the opening of the extension of the road to Haebaru, which has increased the usage of the road as a whole. 9,480 cars use the Haebaru extension every day on average. According to the corporation, The Okinawa Expressway generated revenues totaling \24,722,800 per day.

Corporation officials say that the increased usage of the toll road eases traffic on the island’s two main highways, Hwy 58 and Hwy 329 significantly. “It takes only 20 minutes to reach the Naha Airport from Okinawa City using the expressway, whereas its up to one hour or even more via Hwy 58 or Hwy 329, so it makes sense that many people choose to use the toll road,” a Japan Highway Traffic Corp. spokesman said.
