Tolling

WestConnex has a distance-based tolling system which means motorists only pay for the section of motorway they use. 

Tolls for the using the full length of WestConnex will be capped at a maximum amount of $9.68 ($2020). 

Heavy vehicles pay higher tolls reflecting the greater wear and tear these vehicles have on motorways. 

A distance-based toll applies on the WestConnex M4 between Parramatta and Haberfield/Ashfield and WestConnex M8 between Beverly Hills (King Georges Road) to St Peters (St Peters Interchange).

Tolls will begin on the other stages of WestConnex when they open to traffic. 

Un-tolled alternative routes are available for all WestConnex motorways. View them here using our trip compare tool

Toll prices – cars and motorcycles

All tolls are calculated using a 'flagfall' of $1.37 and then $0.51 per kilometre. All amounts are in 2020 dollars. Maximum capped toll for entire WestConnex = $9.68. *For passenger vehicles only. 

Journeys on the M5 East between General Holmes Drive to Marsh Street, both eastbound and westbound, will remain free.

Toll increases 

After tolling commences, indexation (increases) of prices will be consistent for all WestConnex projects. There will be an increase of 4% or the consumer price index (CPI) per annum (whichever is greater) until 2040. After that, CPI will apply.

You are legally required to pay a toll

Motorists travelling on the WestConnex motorway network are required to pay a toll and any associated administration charges. The tolls and any charges can be paid via a tag, pass or app. A requirement to pay a toll or charge includes a requirement to pay any administrative charges imposed.

To pay for travel on WestConnex visit Linkt (hyperlink to this page - https://www.linkt.com.au/sydney/pay-for-tolls) or call Linkt Customer Care on Linkt customer care 13 33 31

It is an offence for the driver of a vehicle that passes a toll point to not pay a toll or charge payable for the use of the tollway. If you travel on a toll road without making an arrangement to pay the toll within 3 days, the toll recovery process will commence.

Administrative fees

A 55c video matching fee (when a vehicle does not have a tag and is identified as such) applies in a number of circumstances, including a tagless account, when a tag fails to read, or when a tag is not valid. This is an administrative charge to assist in recovering the cost of collecting the toll.

Toll Notices

A Toll Notice may be issued to the registered operator of the vehicle detected. The letter will request payment of the toll and an administration fee to recover the cost of collecting the toll.

If you pay with an electronic tag account: Pay the toll + $1.10 toll notice transfer fee per toll infringement (this is a discounted amount).

If you receive a toll notice in the mail:

Toll Notice:  $10 toll notice administration fee per toll infringement (or $1.10 (a discounted amount) if transferred to valid tag account).

Final Toll Notice: $20 toll notice administration fee per toll infringement (or $2.20 (a discounted amount) if transferred to valid tag account).​​​
