SOUTH Africans can expect to be paying more at toll plazas from next week. The annual increase, effective from March 15, puts the Mariannhill fee for cars at R8, up from R7,50.

All the tolls on the N2 and N3 highways will be increased. Travelling from Pietermaritzburg on the N2 north to Empangeni will now cost motorists R54, an increase of R5,50.

South on the N2 to Port Shepstone via Oslo Beach will cost an extra R3, bringing the toll fee up to R27.

From Pietermaritzburg to Ladysmith, the additional R7 will bring the total cost up to R80.

The toll fee increases are based on the Consumer Price Index.

SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) CEO Nazir Alli said in statement the toll system is aimed at making funding available faster than subsidies from income tax, thus leading to faster services.
