Gauteng’s e-toll fees for light motor vehicles will be reduced from 58c/km to 30c/km, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa announced on Wednesday.

The monthly cap for e-toll fees would be “dramatically reduced” from R450 a month to R225, he said, briefing the media on a new dispensation for the electronic tolling of Gauteng’s freeways.

“Revised caps will also be introduced to other categories of vehicles and what have you. But here we are focusing on the bulk of users, which are light motor vehicles," he said.

Public transport would remain exempt from paying e-tolls.

There would be no fees charged for people who made less than 30 gantry passes a year.

The new dispensation would be implemented in phases. The new cap and revised tariffs would start in the next two to three months.
