The toll road system has been historically accounted for the bulk of the financing of highway network. By building a toll roadway, it is possible to provide a number of improved services to the road users, which can be measured in order to ensure that they deliver the outcomes that are envisaged. In toll road sector, the major stakeholders, typically the Government and the contractors are responsible for development of the toll project and delivering operational services, using associated technologies, thereby fulfilling the primary objective of creating a toll way, being the customers‘ satisfaction. In this paper, the primary data collection methodologies broadly include toll traffic studies, structured observation study and a survey using a structured questionnaire. At the outset, traffic studies across various toll plaza sites were conducted in order to capture a variety of vehicles using toll ways and determine toll revenue thereof. The observation of study involved a field visit at the toll plazas with an observation sheet with clearly defined format for capturing various aspects or elements of the toll operational zone and that of road corridors. Finally paper conclude with the revenue period for the selected case study.
