In the discretion of the authority, bonds may be secured by a trust indenture by and between the authority and a corporate
trustee, which may be any trust company or bank having the powers of a trust company within or outside of the State, or by
a loan or other security agreement with a lender or with such a trustee containing provisions that may be included in a bond
resolution or trust indenture under this chapter. The trust indenture or loan or other security agreement may pledge or assign
tolls or revenues to be received but may not convey or mortgage the turnpike or any part thereof. Either the resolution providing
for the issuance of the bonds or the trust indenture or loan or other security agreement may contain provisions for protecting
and enforcing the rights and remedies of the bondholders or other lenders or of the trustee, if any, as may be reasonable
and proper and not in violation of law, including: covenants setting forth the duties of the authority in relation to the
acquisition of property; the construction, maintenance, operation, repair and insurance of the turnpike; the custody, safeguarding
and application of all money; and any other provisions that the authority determines are necessary, convenient or desirable
for the security of bondholders and other lenders or of the trustee, if any. Any such indenture or loan or other security
agreement may restrict the individual right of action of bondholders or other lenders to the extent the authority determines
is necessary, convenient or desirable. All expenses incurred in carrying out the trust indenture or loan or other security
agreement may be treated as a part of the cost of the maintenance, operation and repair of the turnpike.

any such agreements with the authority and to furnish indemnity bonds or to pledge any securities required by the authority.
