Shanghai plans to phase out its toll booths by December, as part of a national push to cut highway congestion.

Toll booths are major bottlenecks, especially during public holidays, Xie Feng, director of Shanghai’s city transport authority, told a state-owned radio station Sunday. Toll stations on cross-province expressways will be replaced entirely by electronic toll collection systems that don’t require cars to stop, by the end of this year, Xie said.

The municipality’s toll collection system will get software and hardware upgrades by the end of October, before the physical toll stations are demolished by the end of December.

Shanghai also hopes to introduce inter-provincial bus networks to boost public transport connectivity in the surrounding Yangtze River Delta region, Xie said.
