R9.50 for the two kilometers of road leading up to the Stormvoel plaza. WTF?

My mom lives in Waterval-Boven. Their FNB was shut down in April last year.

When we visited her just after, we had to drive to Machado to get bank statements - it's only about 4KM.

It cost us R176 in toll fees, there and back. This now goes up to R186.

That sounds like some price gouging is on the go, and suddenly the Stormvoel plaza does not seem so bad.

I think the R93 one-way is the highest single toll gate in the country. It's probably to coin it when people go to the Kruger national park.

Tolling would make sense if every citizen got LV handbags full of cash & braai packs. Otherwise what's the point of paying something you already get taxed for?
