Toll Fees Lowered At Beitbridge
The cost in Zimbabwe of driving a vehicle across the New Limpopo Bridge linking the country with South Africa at the town of Beitbridge has been reduced, as the Zimbabwe government assumes ownership and operation of the bridge after a 20-year Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) agreement with the company that built it in 1994.
Motor cycles will now pay $3 while light motor vehicles and heavy vehicles will fork out $6 and $17 respectively.
Previous tolls were $4,70 (50 rand), $9,45 (100 rand) and $27,25 (300 rand), respectively.
The toll fees will be administered by the Zimbabwe National Road Administration (Zinara) and payable at the designated office within the Beitbridge Border Post.
Self-drive visitors should remember that officials from the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority are stationed at the Beitbridge border specifically to assist any visitors or tourists coming into Zimbabwe.
