N4 toll route tests automated tag payment

System tested on N4 toll route

Trans African Concessions (TRAC) has commenced rolling out the automated Tag payment system on the N4 Toll Route.

The initiative will be rolled out in phases, with a pilot phase for selected tag holders having already started during January 2017.

All the South African-based plazas on the route, which runs from the Solomon Mahlangu off-ramp to the Port of Maputo in Mozambique, will participate in the initial implementation phase until 28 February 2017.

Automated Tag payment is an additional toll payment method for motorists who have SANRAL tags fitted in their vehicles.

However, there are currently no dedicated lanes for electronic tag payments and all existing payment methods will continue to be accepted at TRAC’s South African-based plazas, with all lanes continuing to be manned by toll collectors.

Other payment options available on the TRAC N4 toll route are as follows:

Class 1: Cash, Credit Card, garage/petrol card, fleet card, TRAC concession card
Class 2 – 4: Cash, fleet card, TRAC concession card

Road users are reminded that debit cards, Diners Club, American Express and all other International Cards are NOT accepted methods of payment for any class of vehicle on the N4 Toll Route.

The automated Tag payment pilot phase is effective at the following mainline and ramp plazas:

  • Diamond Hill Mainline Plaza
  • Middelburg Mainline Plaza
  • Machado Mainline Plaza
  • Nkomazi Mainline Plaza
  • Donkerhoek Ramp
  • Cullinan Ramp
  • Valtaki Ramp
  • Ekandustria Ramp

  1. I assume adjusted tariffs will be implemented for e-tag holders or will standard tariffs be charged as per usual? Also what will the effect be on concession card holders? We travel between Middelburg and Johannesburg daily so have concession cards as well as e-tags in vehicles.
