Tolls on the M5
The M5 South West Motorway is permitted to charge a toll for two
classes of vehicles-
- Class 2: vehicles not exceeding 2.0 metres in height and with
- Class 2: vehicles not exceeding 2.8 metres in height and with
two axles, and
- Class 4: all vehicles that do not confirm to the aforementioned
The tolls charged are governed by simple formula in the Deed between
the RTA and Interlink Roads Pty Limited.
This Deed stipulates that Interlink cannot increase tolls other
than to keep abreast of the Consumer Price Index. Furthermore, for
the convenience of customers, tolls can only be increased in 50c
increments. If the inflation rate was the same year by year, the
tolls actually charged would be lower than the CPI adjusted theoretical
toll for half the time and higher for the other half.
The GST is included in the toll charges.
The toll is collected at the main toll plaza at Hammondville and
at the east facing on and off-ramps located at Fairford Road, the
River Road and Henry Lawson Drive. The toll plazas are monitored
from a central control room at the Hammondville toll plaza housing
a sophisticated video, data and communications system.

Do you really need a receipt?
Asking for a receipt slows traffic and causes congestion during
peaks. You do not need a receipt. There are simpler ways.
GST legislation only requires a receipt for supplies costing more
than $55. For tax purposes a diary or log entry of the toll paid
is sufficient and no receipt is needed.
If your employer requires a receipt as a record of toll payment,
please provide this information to your accountant.
The M5 South West Motorway provides fully itemised statements to
its account customers, covering all tollroads in Sydney, saving
considerable time and cost in reconciliation of expenses.
