The NZ Transport Agency is reminding customers that tolls on the Northern Gateway Toll Road (NGTR) on State Highway 1 north of Auckland will increase on November 29 2015.
The price of each trip will go up by 10 cents for cars, motorcycles and light vehicles to $2.30 and by 30 cents to $4.70 for heavy vehicles.
The increases are the first in three and a half years and only the second increase since the toll road opened in January 2009.
“Occasional adjustments are necessary to ensure the toll road remains viable and the $158m debt is repaid by 2045. As soon as the costs are repaid the toll will be removed.
Customers with a toll account don’t need to do anything as the new toll price will be automatically debited from their accounts for travel on the road from 29 November.
Administration fees for toll payment notices and service and transaction fees remain unchanged.
The Transport Agency encourages people using the toll road more than once to set up a toll account or pre-purchase tolls online, rather than stopping to pay each time you travel. Set one up today at www.tollroad.govt.nz(external link).
