Four tariff groups are defined:

Calculation Of Toll Tariffs
The N3 Toll Route from Heidelberg to Cedara has been divided into a number of sections. It should be noted that the toll plazas are not necessarily placed at the start or end of each of the toll sections. The different toll sections are:
- the De Hoek toll section;
- the Wilge toll section;
- the Tugela toll section with ramp plazas at the Tugela East and Bergville Interchanges; and
- the Mooi Toll Section with Ramp Plazas at the Town of Mooi River.
How We Use The Toll Tariffs
Toll tariffs collected at the N3 Toll Route plazas are used to finance the building, upgrading, maintenance and operation of the portion of the N3 as per the concession contract between N3TC and SANRAL.
N3TC receives no other income/subsidy from the government whatsoever.
In addition to using the tariffs collected to ensure a high-quality road, improved road safety, reduced travelling distances and substantial savings on the running costs of vehicles, N3TC also spends a percentage of the income on corporate social investment projects.
Your Toll Fees Working For You
N3TC attempts to limit inconvenience and unnecessary delays for our customers. But N3TC has a further obligation, which is to ensure that the N3 Toll Route is maintained, upgraded and rehabilitated to specific world-class standards so that the road provides you with a safe and pleasant travelling experience.
