Massive e-toll discounts are here

Gauteng freeway network road users are eligible for a 60% reduction of their e-toll debt in arrears from 2 November, the Department of Transport announced in Government Gazette 39306.

This once-off discount applies to all unpaid e-tolls levied on e-toll roads from 3 December 2013 up to and including 31 August 2015.

“The new e-toll dispensation announced by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa in May is being phased in and changes have been made to the electronic systems to ensure a seamless transition,” said Sanral’s Vusi Mona.

Among the changes that are already in place are a uniform rate of 30 cents per kilometre for light vehicles, and a 50% reduction in the monthly maximum for registered account holders.

Sanral said road users with outstanding e-toll debt incurred from 3 December 2013 until 31 August 2015 now have six months to settle their accounts, or make payment arrangements.

“This is not an amnesty or a debt write-off. It is a special discount offered to road users in terms of the new dispensation,” said Mona.
