The Zimbabwe National Roads Administration (ZINARA) has announced new toll fees effective Monday, 20 December 2021.
In a public notice issued this Saturday, ZINARA said toll fees that are set in foreign currency are payable in Zimbabwe dollars at the prevailing foreign currency auction rate.
The tariffs are pegged in United States dollars (USD), Zimbabwe dollars (ZWL), South African Rands (ZAR) and Botswana Pula (BWP).
Currently, tariffs in Zimbabwe dollars are as follows; light motor vehicles $164, minibuses $246, buses $330, heavy trucks $410 and haulage trucks $820.
The tariffs for light motor vehicles have been pegged at US$2, ZWL$220, ZAR30, and BWP20 respectively.
For minibuses, motorists will fork out US$3, or ZWL$330, ZAR50 or BWP40, while haulage tariff fees have been set at US$10, ZWL$1 100, ZAR160, and BWP120. For all the tariffs, see the table below. ZINARA said:
In terms of Section 4 of Statutory Instrument 32 of 2021, toll fees which are pegged in foreign currency are payable in ZWL at the prevailing foreign currency auction rate.
Pursuant to that, the motoring public is advised that with effect from 20 December 2021, the following toll fees will apply:
|Class||USD Tariff||New Tariff (ZWL)||New Tariff (ZAR)||New Tariff (BWP)|
|Light motor- vehicle||2||220||30||20|
This means that tollgate tariffs in USD terms have not changed. ZINARA has adjusted tariffs in Zimbabwe dollars as well as giving motorists the option to pay in Rands or Pula.
