E-tolls unaffected by toll tariff hike

This was according to the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral), which announced that toll tariffs would increase in line with the consumer price index (CPI) on May 24.

Electronic tolling in Gauteng would not be affected.

“E-toll tariffs in Gauteng became effective in the beginning of December 2013 and therefore the first annual adjustment may only be in March 2015,” said the road agency’s spokesperson Vusi Mona.

“Any adjustments to the tariffs are based on the preceding 12 months’ CPI. The average CPI adjustment for Sanral toll tariffs is 5.8 percent,” the roads agency said in a statement.

Transport Minister Dipuo Peters approved the tariff adjustments proposed by the roads agency early in May and the adjustments were gazetted on 9 May.

The only toll plaza that would not be affected by the increase was Swartruggens.

“We use the inflation rate as a guide, as we at the national roads agency do not want to increase road usage costs beyond what is reasonable,” Mona said.
