Free ride ends on Highway 407 extension

Motorists driving on the province's new Highway 407 and Highway 412 east of Toronto will have to pay tolls starting February 1st.
    
The new Highway 407 runs east from Brock Road in Pickering to Harmony Road in Oshawa, while Highway 412 connects Highway 407 to the 401.
    
Both highways opened in June and motorists have been able to travel on them free of charge while the tolling infrastructure was being installed.
    
The province says those who drive on the privately operated Highway 407 E-T-R as well as the new Highway 407 and Highway 412 will use one transponder and receive one invoice, making the tolling process seamless.
