Their way or the highway

18.02.2016

The Automobile Association (AA) has sent out a press release advising Gauteng motorists that the prices of e-tolls on the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP), are set to increase by almost five percent on 1st March.

We are sorry for ruining your day, but let us elaborate further…

The announcement of the increases has been contained in the Government Gazette (Number 39695), which was issued on Tuesday, 15th February. The reason why the AA is making motorists aware of these increases is because the information does not appear on Sanral’s e-toll website, nor is the AA aware of any Sanral customers being directly informed thereof. No mention of any adjustments to the capped limit for tagged users is made in the Government Gazette.

Strangely, these increases come barely six months after the tariffs were reduced as a result of a public outcry, and discounts of up to 60 percent were offered on outstanding balances, if settled before September 2015.

Once again we would have preferred Sanral to be more upfront with this information, and to try and win over support, rather than relying on other organisations such as the AA to inform the media and the public.

Below is a breakdown of current and future rates, for a day trip on the GFIP from Soweto to Pretoria.

Let us know what your thoughts are. Do you have an e-tag, or are you strongly against this forceful e-toll?
