January 25, 2016 – The New Brunswick says it intends to make a decision on options for tolling on provincial highways in advance of February 2nd’s budget presentation.

According to an article from CBC News, Finance Minister Roger Melanson has stated that three proposed options for tolling are being considered, as is the possibility of not introducing any tolls at all.

The province is currently wrestling with a difficult budget as the government works to keep costs under control. Tolling has been presented as a way to collect more revenue, with the potential to raise upwards of $60 million per year. However, there are concerns about inter-provincial and U.S. trade agreements that could be violated with the introduction of tolls.
