WHAT IS THE
new e-tolling system?
WHAT YOU
CAN DO
Join us to help stop the tolls, here is how:

It consists of 49 gantries on Gauteng highways. The gantries charge people by electronically identifying the number plates of vehicles that drive under them. Each time a vehicle passes, a toll is charged. The cost is determined by the kilometre distance which the gantry represents.

The system is controversial. Many criticise it for being very costly (reportedly R14 billion over six years), impossible to implement properly because of its complexity, and a threat to the province's economic wellbeing.

E-tags are small electronic discs that drivers will purchase and install in their cars. The discs will have money loaded onto them and will be linked to your account as a debit order or to your credit card. The option will be available to load money onto the e-tag in advance or to have money automatically debited from your account whenever the card is running low.

E-tags will be available at a Customer Service website and various outlets.

A 25% discount will be available for those users that register an e-toll tag account and install the e-tag in their vehicle in order for the e-tag to be used as the identifier for the gantries.

The tolls are supposed to pay for the R20billion highway upgrade program that has recently been completed.

The basic discounted toll charge is 24c per kilometre for motorcycles, 40c per kilometre for light motor vehicles (cars) and R2 per kilometre for small trucks, charged according to the distance of highway covered by the specific gantry you drive under. So, if the gantry you drive under is for a 5km distance between the one onramp and a nearby off ramp, then you will be charged for passing under that gantry, whether or not you actually used the full 5km it covers.

Most people will use the highways will pay between R400 and R800 a month.

Here are some examples of what a motorist will pay on some commonly used routes:
