Cabinet has approved reduced toll tariffs for the Gauteng freeway improvement project phase A1, spokesman Jimmy Manyi said on Thursday.
Motorcycles would pay 24 cents a kilometre, light motor vehicles 40 cents, medium vehicles R1, and “longer” vehicles R2 a kilometre, he told reporters after Cabinet's regular Wednesday fortnightly meeting.
Qualifying commuter taxis and buses would be exempted entirely.
In addition to the 31 percent e-tag discount, other discounts applicable would be the time of day discount available to all vehicles, and a frequent user discount for motorcycles and light motor vehicles fitted with an e-tag.
Cabinet had agreed that Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele should give effect to the approval in terms of the SA National Roads Agency Limited and National Roads Act, Manyi said. - Sapa
