The (Toll) Road to Dettifoss....

A couple of years ago a smooth, hard-surface road was constructed to Dettifoss allowing a much easier route to this natural feature. Now the land owners association for Reykjahlíð, over which this new road passes, are to charge the increased numbers of visitors to access the part of Vatnajökull National Park in which Dettifoss is located. I would like to know if the land owners or the State paid for the construction of this road, and for just what they see the 'toll' money is actually to be used.
