Once open to traffic, the State Tolling Corporation (STC) will be responsible for managing the North East Link road, including the collection of toll revenue.

STC has been established to be responsible for managing and controlling the use of and access to, and operating and maintaining, the North East Link road and to set and collect the tolls on North East Link tollway when the project opens.
