◆ How to use transit adjustment

《ETC customers》
  • Customers using ETC should wirelessly drive outflow designated ICs, and also wirelessly reinflow designated ICs. (Transit certificates are not issued for ETC vehicles.)
  • We will apply ETC time zone discounts, assuming that traveling is a single trip. Please note that the toll fee may be different from the toll display at the tollgate because it will be adjusted at the time of billing.
  • Insert the same ETC card for all journeys and pass through the ETC lane at the tollgate.
<< Customers such as cash >>
  • Customers paying in cash, etc., receive a "transit certificate" at the designated IC at the outflow, get a "passing ticket" at the IC designated at the reinflow, and "transit at the tollgate where you pay first" Please hand "certificate" and "passport ticket".

4 Construction Overview

Tohoku Expressway ・ At the Tochigi Tsuga JCT in Kita-Kanto Expressway, we will carry out a sign board replacement work to number the sign boards. When performing construction work, it is necessary to perform work with the lamps closed because construction is not possible under normal lane regulations. Therefore, to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, we will close the lamps during the nights of weekdays when traffic is low, and implement construction intensively and efficiently.

It is necessary work to use safe and comfortable Expressway so please understand and cooperate.
