Tsitsikamma Toll Plaza Price Increase 2010
The South Africa Roads Agency LTD will increase toll fees at the Tsitsikamma Toll Plaze from 1 March 2010.
The new tariffs are indicated below:
- Class 1 - Old: R 13.00 - New: R 33.00
- Class 2 - Old: R 33.00 - New: R 83.00
- Class 3 - Old: R 80.00 - New: R198.00

A local user discount has been introduced to “help” locals living in the affected area’s.
The discount structure is as follows:
Natures Valley and Covie Residents: 85% Discount - R5 toll
The Crags, Kurland, Cold Stream, Storms River, Tsitsikamma, Nomplumulelo residents 75% discount. R10 toll
Tsitsikamma Toll Plaza to Coldstream 9.7km
Tsitsikamma Toll Plaza to Kurland Village 14.4km
Why all local residents are not given the same discount structure has caused a heated debate and this matter will be taken to the minister of transport. What is the difference between people living in Natures Valley and The Crags, Coldstream, Kurland and even Keurbooms for that matter?
The old toll road was 28km long and was declared in 1984. %C
