Motorists wanted reduced toll fees

86% of Gauteng motorists are not willing to pay the proposed toll fees, a survey released today has found.

The survey, by marketing research company Synovate, showed that only 10% of motorists were willing to pay the proposed rate of 66 cents a kilometre, while 4% were undecided.

Spokesperson Roger Gibbs said 69% of Gauteng motorists were happy to pay to use the toll roads provided the amount was significantly reduced.

Drivers in Pretoria and Johannesburg participated in the survey after the setting up of a steering committee to review more affordable toll fees.

In February, the SA National Roads Agency Limited announced that in June it would start charging 66c/km at the 42 electronic toll gates erected on the N1, N3, N12, N17, R21 and R24.

The tolls cover a distance of about 185km.

The Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project tolls were put on hold pending the outcome of the steering committee deliberations.
