BURLINGTON, Ont. — The last western leg of toll Hwy. 407 was opened this morning extending from Burlington’s Dundas St. interchange and the junction of Hwy. 403 and the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW).

Ontario’s Transport Minister, Brad Clark, was on hand at Guelph Line to help kick off the opening.

The opening will allow truckers and commuters to avoid traffic congestion on the QEW and Hwy. 401 by travelling up to 93 kilometres on the toll highway.

The toll is 11 cents per kilometer between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. and six cents per kilometer for late night travellers.

Vehicles that don’t have a transponder will have to shell out even more money, as there is an additional $4 in fees for those vehicles.
