Types of tolling

Toll operators calculate and charge tolls in different ways. There are 3 types of tolling in NSW.

Distance based

This type of toll is calculated based on the distance you travel on the motorway.

Toll gantries are located at entry and exit points on the motorway and record your electronic tag or number plate details to calculate the applicable toll.

Currently, WestConnex M4, WestConnex M8, WestConnex M5 East and Westlink M7 are the only motorways with distance based tolling.

Time of day tolling

This type of tolling is calculated based on the time you travel.

If you travel outside of the peak period, you will pay a lower toll.

Currently, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour Tunnel are the only toll roads which operate with time of day tolling.

Fixed tolling

Fixed tolling is the tolling method whereby there is a fixed toll for use of the motorway, regardless of the distance or time travelled.
