Expanded Toll Relief for Drivers
NSW motorists will save on tolls with the new Toll Rebate Scheme in effect from 1 July 2022. Under this program, drivers will receive a 40 per cent rebate for tolls incurred after spending $375, to a maximum benefit of $750 annually.
Member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens SC said that our strong economy allows cost of living pressures to be eased by providing additional toll relief for families and eligible small businesses in Ku-ring-gai.
“This new toll package will be putting cash back into the pockets of motorists in Ku-ring-gai,” Mr Henskens said.
“Our government is ensuring travel on the State’s roads is quicker, easier, safer, and more affordable. For the first time, this toll relief will extend to eligible seniors.”
Minister for Metropolitan Roads Natalie Ward said this two-year scheme will make regular use of toll roads more affordable while the Government reviews options to deliver a fair and equitable toll pricing system.
“It is a great day for around 500,000 NSW motorists who are expected to benefit from this new measure, which is more than double the number of road users receiving toll relief currently,” Mrs Ward said.
“Sydney’s state-of-the-art motorway network slashes travel times, eases congestion and creates safer and more reliable trips. We want motorists to get home to their loved ones faster, which our Motorways deliver.”
Road users will still be able to access a rebate on their registration renewal up until 30 June 2023 for tolls incurred between 1 July 2021 and 30 June 2022.
For tolls incurred from 1 July 2022, customers will benefit from the new Toll Rebate Scheme and will receive their first rebate payment in early 2023, followed by quarterly payments thereafter.
