Minister for Roads John Graham said:

“The $60 weekly toll cap is working just as it was designed – getting relief to where it is needed most.”

“This means much-needed dollars in the pockets of drivers across western Sydney, those areas where people have little other choice than to use toll roads and where public transport alternatives are not as viable as in other parts of Sydney.

“The NSW Government’s number one priority is delivering cost of living relief and I urge those drivers who are eligible for toll relief to link their toll account with Service NSW.”

Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Jihad Dib said:

“The Labor Government’s toll relief scheme is helping households save money, and people can easily access this using the Service NSW website.”

“There is a video on the Service NSW website which walks customers through the steps of the claim process. People need to link their toll account to their MyServiceNSW account, follow the prompts and submit a claim if eligible.”
