In the discretion of the commission, such bonds, notes or other obligations may be
secured by a trust indenture by and between the commission and a corporate trustee,
which may be any trust company or bank having the powers of a trust company, within
or outside of the Commonwealth. Such trust indenture may pledge or assign tolls and revenue to be received, but
shall not convey or mortgage the turnpike or any part thereof. Either the resolution providing for the issuance of such bonds, notes or other obligations
or such trust indenture may contain such provisions for protecting and enforcing the
rights and remedies of the bondholders or holders of notes or other obligations as
may be reasonable and proper and not in violation of law, including covenants setting
forth the duties of the commission in relation to the acquisition of properties and
the construction, maintenance, operation and repair, and insurance of, the turnpike,
and the custody, safe-guarding and application of all moneys. It shall be lawful for any bank or trust company incorporated under the laws of
this Commonwealth to act as depository of the proceeds of bonds, notes or other obligations
or revenues, and to furnish such indemnity bonds or to pledge such securities as may
be required by the commission. Such indenture may set forth the rights and remedies of the bondholders or holders
of notes or other obligations and of the trustee, and may restrict the individual
right of action of bondholders or holders of notes or other obligations as is customary
in trust indentures securing bonds, debentures of corporations, notes or other obligations. In addition to the foregoing, such trust indenture may contain such other provisions
as the commission may deem reasonable and proper for the security of bondholders or
holders of notes or other obligations. All expenses incurred in carrying out such trust indenture may be treated as part
of the cost of maintenance, operation and repair of the turnpike.
