Yellow River bridge toll finally scrapped

10 October 2012
Drivers in Henan province no longer have to pay a Rmb10 toll to cross the 5.5km Zhengzhou Yellow River Bridge that links the cities of Zhengzhou and Xinxiang.

The Wall Street Journal said the toll was scrapped because of a “grudging acknowledgement” by bridge operators Henan Zhongyuan Expressway that it could no longer charge users for crossing the bridge.

Built in 1986 for Rmb178m, the bridge recouped enough from tolls to repay debts after just one decade, according to a 2008 investigation by the National Audit Office. Between 1996 and 2008, the company amassed a further Rmb1.45bn in earnings, the audit report said. But it has taken four more years of toll paying before drivers could cross the bridge for free.
