Toll road users across Baulkham Hills will benefit free vehicle registration under the NSW Government’s Toll Relief program, which commenced on Sunday 1 July.
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott welcomed the announcement from Premier Gladys Berejiklian which will save eligible motorists between $423 and $729 a year on registration costs.
Mr Elliott said toll road users will be eligible for free vehicle registration if they spend more than $25 a week on average, or $1300 over a 12 month period.
“Toll Relief delivers a fair go for drivers across Baulkham Hills who are regular users of on toll roads” Mr Elliott said.
“The NSW Government is committed to addressing cost of living pressures faced by families and motorists. Toll Relief is another example of the NSW Government putting money back into your pocket.
The scheme will apply to private drivers who use existing toll roads and will apply to any new toll roads in the future. The scheme is backdated, so eligible motorists will enjoy free vehicle registration if they spent more than $25 a week from 1 July 2017 up to 30 June 2018.
Drivers that are currently opted into the M5 Cashback Scheme will have the choice to opt out and have their M5 tolls count towards Toll Relief or remain in the M5 Cashback Scheme.
The program is one of a raft of NSW Government measures helping to ease cost of living pressures for households including through the Fuel Check app, cheaper hospital car parking, Active Kids vouchers and CTP refunds.
