When asked the comments for the decision of free tolls for highways during major holidays, many highway companies in Hangzhou reply the same: a great preasure.For exemple, we found the statistics of "Southern Hangzhou" toll stations released in the previous years which showed that during the firt two days in National Holiday, the daily traffic volume was 5-6 million. If the free charging practices are adopted, the traffic will be doubled up. As an important main trunk of tourism economy, a large number of traffic flow will "attack" this toll station. The practice of free charging will exactly add pressure to the main trunk during the tourist season.
