E-tolls to cost 30c per km

2012-10-26 06:48

Tariffs for motorists with e-tags in Gauteng will be set at 30c per kilometre, according to the government gazette.

According to a report in the Star newspaper today, standard rates for those without e-tags are more than double this amount.

Quoting the gazette, The Star said users without e-tags who pay their toll fees within 30 days will be given a 60% discount.

A monthly cap on heavy vehicles has also been included.

Cars and motorbikes are capped at a maximum of R550 a month, class B (small heavy vehicles) at R1 750 and class C (large heavy vehicles) at R3 500.

It is unclear when e-tolling will begin.

Government was expected to make an announcement on ­e-tolling later today.

This week, Cabinet approved the gazetting of terms and conditions, including updated tariffs.

There would be a 30-day period for public comment.

The government would then incorporate the comments and publish its final position after 14 days.

The 30-day period expires one day before the start of the judicial review of e-tolling on November 26.
