Proposed Regulations under the Highway 407 East Act, 2012
Bill or Act:
Highway 407 East Act, 2012
Summary of Proposal:
Highway 407 East, the first phase of which is anticipated to be open to traffic by late 2015, is a provincially owned toll highway. When completed, the highway will run east from the eastern end of Highway 407 to Highway 35/115, and will include two north-south connecting links between Highway 407 East and Highway 401.
Tolling services will be provided by a company affiliated with 407 ETR, the company that owns and operates Highway 407, but tolls for Highway 407 East are set by the Province and toll revenue is retained by the Province.
The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is proposing regulations under the Highway 407 East Act, 2012 (407 East Act) in respect of the following matters:
• Setting the initial toll rates
• Similarly to the Highway 407 Act, 1998, specifying personal information about persons owing tolls that MTO can provide to its tolling service provider for purposes specified in the 407 East Act
• Exempting vehicles or persons from the obligation to pay tolls, fees and interest for using the Highway (e.g. emergency and police vehicles)
• Setting the interest rate charged to Highway users on overdue accounts
• Setting out and governing methods for sending invoices, notices and other documents under the 407 East Act.
