Social Equity and Toll Roads

Pankaj Lembhe [7]

Abstract: This paper aims to examine the relationship between toll roads and social equity. By considering the various sources and literature, it is expected that the findings of this study will provide insights for policymakers in India and other developing countries as they navigate the implementation of toll roads and ensure equitable access to transportation infrastructure. The expansion of toll roads can have implications for social equity [1]. One potential concern is that toll roads may disproportionately impact low-income individuals who rely on public transportation or cannot afford the additional cost of tolls. Another concern is that toll roads can create disparities in access to essential services and opportunities, as certain communities may be excluded or face barriers in accessing areas with toll roads. Therefore, it is crucial for policymakers to design toll road policies and mechanisms that take into account social equity considerations, such as implementing discounted or exemption programs for low-income individuals, providing alternative transportation options, and conducting thorough equity impact assessments before implementing toll road projects. Additionally, it is important for governments to ensure that revenue generated from toll road fees is reinvested in improving public transportation infrastructure and services, particularly in underserved communities, to mitigate the potential negative impacts on social equity.
