Roads agency Sanral will now accept the e-tags used in Gauteng’s electronic tolling system at many of its toll plazas countrywide.
The company said in an e-mail to clients on Friday that the tags can now be used on a wide range of toll roads, provided users have loaded sufficient funds. The system should make it faster for drivers to get through toll plazas.
The new toll routes that will accept e-tags are:
— N1 North toll route — Capricorn, Kranskop, Nyl, Sebetiela and Baobab toll plazas
— N17 toll route — Gosforth, Dalpark, Denne, Leandra, Ermelo and Trichardt toll plazas
— N1 South/R30 toll route — Grasmere, Vaal, Verkeerdevlei and Brandfort toll plazas
— N2 South Coast toll route — Oribi, Umtentweni and Izotsha toll plazas
— N3 Mariannhill toll plaza
— All toll plazas on the N3 toll concession route
— All toll plazas on the N1/N4 Bakwena toll route
Signage at each toll plaza will indicate where drivers can use their e-tag instead of stopping and paying an attendant.
“There are also specially marked ‘shesha lanes’, which are exclusively for tag users,” Sanral said. “These lanes are for tagged light vehicles only. These lanes are already operational on some routes. They will come online soon on the remaining routes.” — (c) 2015 NewsCentral Media
