Vusi Mona, Sanral’s general manager for communications and marketing, clarified that these adjustments align with inflation rates, with toll revenue allocated to maintain, operate, and enhance toll roads. The toll fees are categorised by vehicle classes, including light vehicles (class one), medium heavy vehicles (class two), large vehicles (class three), and extra-large heavy vehicles (class four).

Additionally, frequent users of toll routes may qualify for discounts.
