Toll road information New ZealandTolling is an option for contributing to the costs of construction, operations and maintenance of new roads. It allows the opportunity to bring forward the construction of key roads, providing regions with safer roads and potential economic growth. The Transport Agency currently has three toll roads: the Northern Gateway Toll Road north of Auckland, and the Tauranga Eastern Link Toll Road and the Takitimu Drive Toll Road, both in Tauranga.
A toll is charged each time the toll road is used. The amount you pay depends on the type of vehicle you’re driving.
Toll prices are signposted as you approach each toll road. What is the best way to pay my toll?
