Toll fees paid in local currency rise on Monday, while remaining constant in US dollars, as Zinara catches up on exchange rate movements in recent months.

Since December 2021, the rates have been set in United State dollars at: light motor vehicles US$2, minibuses US$3, buses US$4, heavy vehicles US$5, haulage trucks US$10 and residential discount per term of US$40.

Zinara is supposed to adjust the local currency figure regularly when exchange rate changes need this.

The changes from Monday are: light motor vehicles $1 900 up from $1 300, minibuses $2 850 up from $1 950, buses$3 800, haulage trucks $4 750, heavy vehicles $9 500. The US$40 residential discount per term is now $38 000.

In a statement, Zinara spokesperson Mr Tendai Mugabe said the authority for regular resetting of tolls in local currency depending on the official exchange rate comes from Section 4 of Statutory Instrument 32 of 2021.
