Tolls rise on Maputo-South Africa motorway

Tolls on the Maputo-South Africa motorway are to be increased by between 10 and 15 per cent from 1 March, according to an announcement by the Trans-Africa Concessions (TRAC), the company that operates the motorway. Mozambique’s two toll-gates are located in Maputo and in the Moamba district in the south.

At Maputo the toll for light vehicles and motorcycles will rise from 17.5 to 20 meticais, while for trucks with five or more axles it increases from 174 to 200 meticais. In Moamba the toll for light vehicles goes up from 95 to 125 meticais, and for heavy trucks from 707 to 780 meticais.

Registered buses and minibuses are exempt from the toll increases, and there are also discounts available for frequent users of the motorway.

Tolls are reviewed each year under the contract between TRAC and Mozambique’s government, with increases often justified by changes in exchange rates. However some commuters complain that TRAC does not maintain the Mozambican stretch of motorway to the same standards as the section over the border in South Africa.
