The expected price rise for travelling across the Harbour Bridge expected to be implemented this month has been postponed, the state government recently announced. In April, those commuters using the M2 were slugged with price rises with the toll plaza at Macquarie Park rising to $6.95 for cars and motorcycles. The Pennants Hills Road ramp toll rose four cents to $3.48, and the Windsor Road ramps increased three cents to $2.46. The Lane Cove Tunnel went from $3.21 to $3.23.

    Tolls are vexed but at least you get to go somewhere. Parking charges are outrageous in comparison. I’ve always had tolls charged to a company account until I retired. I do not miss my former occupation for a second. I note that the toll charges are increasing at a good deal more than wages or inflation. Once more the long suffering motorist is being treated as a cash cow. It’s an added impost to transportation and business in general. No wonder the economy is tanking.
