The NSW government just announced drivers who spend $15 or more a week on tolls can get their rego half price next July. Drivers who spend $25 or more a week on tolls will continue to get free rego.
Spend $15 a week on tolls
It is all too easy to spend $15 a week on tolls in Sydney.
M2 is at least $2.18 each way = $21.80 pw
M5 southwest is $4.71 each way = $47.10 pw
Eastern distributor is $7.46 one way = $37.30 pw
Cross city tunnel is at least $2.70 each way = $27.00 pw
Sydney harbour bridge/tunnel peak hour is $4 one way = $20 pw
While the government says Sydney’s west and northwest will be major winners, even people crossing the harbour bridge each day will benefit.
A few details
- The program begins from 1 July 2019 but will be backdated to 1 July 2018
- Families with more than one vehicle registered to an account can pool their total spend to qualify
- All standard privately registered cars, utes, 4WDs and motorcycles are eligible
- You will be informed when you renew online.
Remember the price of your green slip will also drop next year because of the lower fund levy.
