Toll Plazas

Conventional Toll Plazas have automatic electronic toll payment lanes available. If you have a SANRAL account registered with a tag fitted and an up-to-date account, you may use your tag as a method of payment at the toll plaza.

Automated Electronic Payment Lanes:

  • Signs at the plaza will indicate which lane you can use your tag at. (If a ‘tag accepted’ sign is displayed approaching the toll plaza and lanes are not individually marked, it means all lanes accept tags).
  • Reduce speed when entering the toll plaza area.
  • Select a lane which accepts SANRAL tags as a method of payment.
  • Maintain a car length following distance to avoid paying for a vehicle in front of you.

Once your tag is detected, it will emit one or more 'beeps':

  • 1  Beep: Payment Successful
  • 2  Beeps: Low Balance Warning
  • 4  Beeps: Account Suspended
  • No Beeps: Contact Customer Service
