Highway toll gates in Lishui city -- located in East China's Zhejiang province -- made big progress recently by providing drivers with a variety of payment methods, including Alipay, WeChat and UnionPay.

Drivers need only show the payment QR code on their mobile phone, which reportedly improves the efficiency of the toll lanes, but also reduces contact between toll collectors and drivers when handing cash during the novel coronavirus epidemic prevention and control period.

Officials said the move has generated strong support for building unattended toll gates in the future.
