Why our toll roads have the same price regardless of time of day has always been beyond me? Not only does it reduce total revenue raised it also doesn’t help management the efficiency of the road system, causes congestion and so is bad for the environment.
The NSW Government has decided to lead the country by finally putting in place time of day pricing on the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Tunnel. The peak price will rise 25% while there will be a drop in off peak prices. The peak price will be almost twice the off-peak price. There will also be the current toll for other times. Hopefully this will be a success and other states will follow.
