Western Sydney Drivers Set To Be Slugged Even More In Tolls

It's only been a few months since the M4 toll was reintroduced and already prices are set to rise.

On January 1, 2018 the cost of a one-way toll between Parramatta and Homebush will rise 18 cents to $4.74.

Meaning over the year, Western Sydney drivers will have to fork out $2,275 - up $87.

And the terms of the contract with the NSW Government mean that the toll will continue to rise 4 per cent or the rate of inflation, whichever is higher, every year for the next 34 years.

“These unfair and unaffordable tolls are nothing more than a tax on Western Sydney that people can ill afford," NSW Opposition Leader and Shadow Minister for Western Sydney Luke Foley said.

“The Premier may like to talk about measures to ease the cost of living but jacking up the tolls while everyone is away on holidays shows that is just that – talk.”

Happy New Year, Westies!
