Tolling on roads included in the controversial Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project will begin on April 30, the National Treasury said on Wednesday.

In a government announcement issued alongside the Budget, it said government had contributed a once-off 5.75 billion rand to the South African National Roads Agency to bring about a lowering of proposed toll fees.

It said the contribution by government will ensure that tariffs are reduced for vehicles with e-tags to 30c per kilometre for light vehicles, 20c per kilometer for motorcycles, 75c for non-articulated trucks and 1.51 rand for articulated trucks.

As had previously been announced, taxis and other public transport vehicles remain exempt from toll fees.

In addition, the announcement said that a frequent-user cap of 550 rand per month for light vehicles and motorcycles, as well as time-of-day saving of 20% for heavy vehicles, will be introduced.

Significantly, the debt of SANRAL will increase to 59 billion rand. To ensure sustainability, it said the Minister of Transport will table the necessary legislation to provide SANRAL with enforcement powers for tolling.
