The government gazette relating to e-tolling in Gauteng says that tariffs for motorists with e-tags will be set at 30 cents per kilometre, according to a report in the Star newspaper on Friday.

Standard rates for those without e-tags are more than double this amount.

Quoting the gazette, The Star said users without e-tags who pay their toll fees within 30 days will be given a 60 percent discount.

A monthly cap on heavy vehicles has also been included.

Cars and motorbikes are capped at a maximum of R550 a month, class B (small heavy vehicles) at R1750 and class C (large heavy vehicles) at R3500.

It is unclear when e-tolling will begin.

Government was expected to make an announcement on e-tolling later on Friday.

This week, Cabinet approved the gazetting of terms and conditions, including updated tariffs.

There would be a 30-day period for public comment. The government would then incorporate the comments and publish its final position after 14 days.

The 30-day period expires one day before the start of the judicial review of e-tolling on November 26.
