Vehicle tolling and licensing fees have been increased.
The new tariffs contained in the latest Government Gazette are with effect from today Friday 20 November 2020.
According to the new tariffs, tolling fees for light motor vehicles that fall under class one will now pay $120 up from $45 and class two vehicles will now pay $180 reviewed from $80.
Buses, which are class three vehicles, are now paying $240 up from $90.
Heavy vehicles (class four) that were paying $115 are now required to pay $300 while haulage trucks (class five) now pay $590 up from $225.
Class seven, which is the residential discount for people living near a tollgate and who frequently pass through the facility, is now $600 up from $250.
Vehicle licensing has been adjusted from $750 to $1 800 for light motor vehicles and vehicles with a net mass of 10 750kg and above will now have to pay $30 000 up from $11,250.
ZINARA public relations and marketing manager, Mr. Tendai Mugabe, said the adjustment of the tariffs was aimed at supporting road authorities for them to execute the duties diligently.
“This adjustment is meant to ensure that we make meaningful disbursements to our road authorities,” said Mr Mugabe.
“We believe that this will go a long way in improving our road infrastructure. We are approaching the rainy season a period where most of our roads get damaged in terms of erosion and potholes.
“This adjustment means that we will be ready to repair our roads at the shortest possible time.”
Mr Mugabe said the various road projects across the country attested to Zinara’s commitment to fund a road network that meets international standards.
“If you go to any district right now, there is a capital road project underway. Our desire and objective is to see a road network that helps Zimbabwe to meet the targets of Vision 2030. Herald
