New e-toll fee structure linked to license renewals

ewn.co.za - Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa revealed the final funding model for the Gauteng e-toll system on Wednesday.

Ramaphosa says there will be a single reduced tariff of 30 cents per kilometre and this will apply for all motorists. This is a 50 percent reduction and applies to light motor vehicles.

“If a person was paying R450 they will now pay R225 per month. All users who do not pay tolls in the required 30 days will have to pay double. This will be capped.”

To ensure compliance, motorists will have to pay their toll bills before renewing their car licenses.

Ramaphosa says outstanding e-toll bills will be reduced by 60 percent.

Users will also benefit from 30 free gantry passes a year.

Public transport, including buses and taxis which have permits, will remain exempted.

Ramaphosa says the new dispensation will be implemented in phases, with a revised cap to be implemented in the next two to three months.

“The new dispensation demonstrates that we are a listening, caring and responsible government. The new payment options safeguard the integrity of the fiscus."

He says consultation was hugely enriched by the e-tolls review panels.

Ramaphosa says the panel found the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project and e-tolls had hugely benefited the economy through a better quality road system.

The deputy president argued that the panel found there is general acceptance of user pay principle.
