Motorists who make use of toll routes are urged to brace for an increase in toll road prices, set to come into effect on April 12. Minister of Transport, Blade Nzimande has approved the adjustment of the toll tariffs on all national roads for the 2018/2019 tax year. The increase was gazetted last month.
According to the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral), the increase in tariffs are in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and include the 1% vat increase that came into effect on April 1.
In a statement, Sanral said the newly adjusted tariffs will apply on the N2 toll road between Durban and Johannesburg, on the N4 between the Mozambican and Botswana borders and on the toll road intersections of the N1, N2, N17 and R30.
“The adjusted toll tariffs will also be applicable to the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP) toll roads. The CPI adjustment will also affect the monthly toll caps applicable to GFIP roads. The monthly toll cap for compliant users of light motor vehicles (Class A2) is adjusted from R250 to R266 per month. Discounts for frequent users as well as qualifying local users will remain applicable,” Sanral said.
Sanral said the adjustments are made on an annual basis to keep the toll tariffs aligned with inflation.
The newly adjusted tariffs will apply on the N3 toll road between Johannesburg and Durban, on the N4 between the Mozambican and the Botswana borders, as well as on the toll road sections of the N1, N2, N17 and R30.
