Light vehicles now pay $45 to go through a toll and $750 every four months licence fees.

The changes were made by Minister of Transport and Infrastructural Development Joel Biggie Matiza in two statutory instruments gazetted yesterday.

Toll fees are $45 for light motor vehicles, $70 for mini-buses, $90 for buses, $115 for heavy motor vehicles and $225 for haulage trucks. Motor cycles continue to be exempted from toll fees.

People living within 10km of a toll gate can pay $50 a day without any discount or $3 000 a month, giving them the right to go through that particular toll gate whenever they need to without paying any further fees.

There are discounts that can reduce the fee a bit further.

Vehicle licence fees are charged in 14 mass categories.

The fees for a four month term are:

Up to 1 500kg $750

1 501kg to 2 250kg $950

2 251kg to 3 000kg $1 125
