Highway 407, a 107 km long route, is one of the better-designed freeways in the province of Ontario because of its recent design. This road opened in 1997 and is one of the few freeways in Canada that are privately owned. Users have to pay toll to access it.
The 407 uses a system of cameras and transponders to toll vehicles automatically. There are no toll booths, hence the name “Express Toll Route” (ETR). Highway 407 is designed as a normal freeway but without the need for toll booth intermediaries which could otherwise take up significant land, raise operating cost and increase travel time. A radio antenna detects when a vehicle with a transponder has entered and exited the highway, calculating the toll rate. For vehicles without a transponder, an automatic number plate recognition system is used. Monthly statements are mailed to users. The 407 is the world’s first highway to feature this system throughout.
The reason this highway is special for me is because:
a. I see it thru my window, and
b. A frequently used bike route passes over this freeway.
