Poll: Should Penlink be a toll road?

Caroline Williams Reporter from Rodney Times

Kia ora neighbours. Waka Kotahi NZTA is now taking feedback on whether Penlink should be a toll road.

Construction on the highly anticipated highway is expected to begin this year, for completion by 2026.

If Waka Kotahi proceed with tolling the road, there could be different toll prices for peak and off-peak hours. The prices could vary between $1 to $4, with heavy freight paying more than light vehicles.

Three toll points on the road are being considered, meaning motorists will only have to pay for the parts they use. Those who don’t wish to pay the toll may still access free alternative routes.

Waka Kotahi national manager of infrastructure delivery Mark Kinvig​ said the toll would go towards maintaining the road to keep it “safe and resilient”.

“Variable tolling helps people make choices about when they travel, and therefore the toll price they pay. It will also reduce travel times on Penlink during peak hours,” Kinvig said.
