NSW LABOR WILL CRACKDOWN ON THE TOLL ON TOLLS
NSW Labor will crackdown on the toll on tolls - sneaky administration fees charged on top of tolls on drivers without an automated tag or pass, or whose tag goes undetected.
A Minns Labor Government will look to crackdown on these fees – or tolls on tolls – as part of Alan Fels’ review into the toll system. These ‘Administration fees’ or ‘matching fees’ are a toll charge for millions of motorists that sit on top of the existing toll charges.
At present, motorists receive individual toll notices for every trip, and every notice attracts separate fees. For example, if a motorist makes ten trips with no payment arrangement, they receive ten separate toll notices - each with its own administration fees.
The change will make it compulsory for toll road operators to issue consolidated road toll notices for road users – saving motorists money.
Only NSW Labor has a fresh start plan to tackle the cost of tolls by introducing a $60 weekly toll cap, and overhauling the toll network – pressing operators for a better deal.
