The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) has announced that its toll tariffs will increase by 6.25% from March 1.

The tariffs are adjusted yearly in line with the Consumer Price Index as obtained from Statistics South Africa.

Sanral points out that this year’s increase is less, albeit minimally, than last year’s 6.58% adjustment.

While acknowledging the prevailing economic conditions in the country, Sanral communications and marketing GM Vusi Mona explains that toll revenue is needed to maintain, operate and improve toll roads, as well as to service debt incurred to implement a toll road project. 

“The funds go a long way towards ensuring that Sanral fulfils its mandate of delivering quality road infrastructure that adds value to the lives of South African citizens,” says Mona.

He adds that key economic infrastructure, such as the national road network, is a precondition for providing basic services such as electricity, water, sanitation, telecommunications and public transport and, therefore, needs to be robust and extensive enough to meet industrial, commercial and household needs.

“Sanral is empathetic to the South African public, considering the current state of the economy. However, it is equally important to introduce the adjustments to ensure that the agency continues to deliver safe and quality roads to the benefit of all road users,” says Mona.
