N3 toll fees up R11 for cars, R45 for rigs

2015-03-03 00:00

DRIVING on the N3 will from ­Saturday cost motorists R11 more while truckers will have to pay up to R44,47 extra.

The South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) yesterday ­announced that the toll fees on the national roads, including the N2 and N3 in KwaZulu-Natal, will increase on ­Saturday. The adjustments to the ­tariffs are based on the preceding 12 months’ CPI. The average CPI adjustment for Sanral-managed toll tariffs is 6,017%.

Sanral CEO Nazir Alli said the increases were linked to the inflation rate, “as we do not want to increase road usage costs beyond what is reasonable”.

Transport editor Alwyn Viljoen said a super link on the N3, which currently pays R739 one way, will pay close to R45 more at the weekend.

Viljoen said bikers on the N3 will pay a total of R193 in tolls— the same as motorists or a Siyaya taxi pulling a trailer.
