Sydney toll saving announced by premier

'Free Rego' for drivers on NSW toll roads

A GOVERNMENT cash splash handing free vehicle registration to motorists who spend $25-a-week on tolls will benefit more than half of all drivers who regularly use pay roads - and most hail from Western Sydney.

Motorists have clogged Parramatta Rd to avoid the toll between Parramatta and Homebush.

Sydneysiders are now being tolled for the M1, M2, M4, M5, Eastern Distributor, Harbour Bridge, Cross City, Lane Cove and Harbour tunnels.

High tolls have been needed to pay back the $16.7 billion proposal for the WestConnex motorway project; the F6 extension in the south; and the Beaches Link tunnel in Sydney's north-east. "Sydney is rapidly becoming the toll road capital of the world".

Ms Berejiklian said the rego rebate would not be an incentive for people who use public transport to instead hop in their cars. "This could bring people to roads they haven't previously used".

"There are so many shows centered around this very true fact that people reproduce", she said. I fucking love that show, and I cried when it ended because I couldn't handle not seeing it.

Tens of thousands of drivers could save around $360 a year on their registration, under a NSW government plan to encourage drivers to use toll roads.

Government modelling obtained exclusively by The Daily Telegraph reveals the reach of the Berejiklian government's $100 million plus cost of living strike, which was announced yesterday.

"It could be more (than $100m) into the future".

"I want to make sure that people have every opportunity to use public transport, that's my preferred way of getting around, but obviously we also know that people also need to use toll roads", she said.

The scheme, which starts on July 1 next year, will be backdated, meaning motorists will be eligible for scheme if they've been spending $25 per week since the start of July 2017. It will exclude trucks and other vehicles weighing more than 2795 kilograms.
