Wonderla Bangalore – a wonderful experience

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Wonderla Bangalore – we had been hearing about this amusement park for quite some time and plans were finally made to check it out one bright Sunday morning. It is open to the public from 11am onwards. Located around 25-30kms away from the city on the Bangalore – Mysore Road, the condition of the road was quite good and as we drove via the NICE road, the commute was a breeze.

As we approached, the first thing that caught my eye was the sprawling space – it just seemed to go on and on, all 82 acres of it. There was ample car parking and we alighted with the sun beating down on our backs. It was pleasantly warm though, not hot.

Increase in Pune-Mumbai Express Highway toll tax

Reading Time: < 1 minute

If you frequently commute between Pune and Mumbai using the Express Highway, be prepared to shell out a bit extra by way of toll tax. Effective next month, the Express Highway toll tax is set to be revised upwards to Rs.140 from Rs.118 for cars, and from Rs.348 to Rs.411 for buses. The tax is revised every three years.

The Express Highway was constructed on BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) basis by the MSRDC in 2002, who were granted permission to collect toll tax for 30 years. Jeez, wonder how much toll people will be paying in 2032! 🙂
