Tollink South Africa has won a R110-million contract to supply and maintain toll plazas in Limpopo, its Austrian owner Efkon Group said today.

“The contract spans eight years and includes the full upgrade of the N1 north route (57 lanes) toll plazas as well as the maintenance and support of the system,” Efkon said in a statement.

The entire SA National Roads Agency Limited project, worth about R600 million, was awarded to Tolcon-Lehumo as the operator, Efkon said.

Tollink would be the preferred service provider for the maintenance component of the contract, valued at R110 million.

The project started in June this year and the operation service period was scheduled to end on June 30, 2019.

“The system provided by the Efkon Group member will enable the operator to effectively manage traffic, finance the operation and handle toll collection and control at the various toll plazas.”

The N1 north toll road spans 377km across Limpopo, between Gauteng and Zimbabwe, and will have four toll plazas.
