Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project and
Open Road Tolling




                                          31
Gauteng
 Most freeways in Gauteng reached their
  capacity
 Peak hours are extending by 10 to 15 minutes
  each year
 Results in congestion and uneconomical use of
  time with increased vehicle operating costs
  and carbon emissions



                                           32
Economic Impact of Congestion &
Insufficient Maintenance
  SACCI   comments (Jan 2010) :
    Expressed concern about impact on business due to
     congestion and insufficient maintenance
    Based on conservative assumptions, cost of congestion on
     Ben Schoeman amounts to R15m/hour
    Excludes costs associated with:
       Fuel and maintenance
       Late freight deliveries

       Lost business opportunities

       Accident costs




                                                           33
Economic Impact of Congestion &
Insufficient Maintenance
  AA   conducted tests (August 2007) :
    1600cc vehicle travelling between Pretoria and
     Johannesburg
    122 Minutes additional driving per day (40 additional
     hours per month)
    Engines operating for longer times – 1,5l/hr when idling
    Additional 705 litres wasted (469 hrs idling) per annum –
     Extra R4 935 (R7 per litre)
    80 000 people – R395 m per year wasted
    Excludes working time, frustration, accidents


                                                         34
      Maintenance and Repair Cost Increases due
      to Worsening Road Conditions
*




    “The results obtained from the comparison indicate that the maintenance and repair costs of a truck increase as
    the condition of the road on which the truck is travelling deteriorates. When moving from a good condition road to
    a bad condition one, increases in vehicle maintenance and repair costs of approximately 121% can potentially
    be experienced. In addition, the increase in truck repair and maintenance costs due to deteriorating road
    conditions can potentially lead to an estimated increase of around 10% in the total logistics costs of a company.
    Other costs that can potentially be attributed to deteriorating road quality are increased vehicle operating costs,
    increased fuel consumption, increased cargo damages and ultimately increased vehicle design and manufacturing
    costs.”


                                                                                                                    35
    Maintenance and Repair Cost Increases due
    to Worsening Road Conditions


     *When comparing the average repair and maintenance costs of vehicles of
     two companies travelling on specific routes, associated to the condition ... the
     results potentially indicate that a truck (truck 1) from Company B travelling
     from Newcastle to Gauteng (300 km) has on average maintenance and
     repair costs of R627 per trip. A similar truck (truck 2) from the same company
     travelling on the N3 between Gauteng and Durban for 300 km will have on
     average maintenance and repair costs of only R270 per trip. If we assume
     that both trucks make 100 round-trips a year (200 trips in total), the total
.    maintenance and repair costs of truck 1 could potentially amount to R125
     400 per year and for truck 2 it would be R54 000. This indicates a potential
     percentage increase in maintenance and repair costs of 132% per year when
     comparing a truck travelling on a bad road with one travelling on a good road
     for company B.

  these roads




                                                       51
Basis for Determination of Tariffs
  Service  and repay loans to fund initial capital cost
  Interest payments during term of loans
  Asset preservation
  Routine road maintenance
  Operational costs
Considerations– Setting Tariffs


     Affordability – Since 2007, indicated tariff of
      50c/km (2007 Rand)
     Benefit to user should be greater than overall
      cost
     Project should be financially viable – must be
      able to repay debt incurred, as well as cover
      operational maintenance costs
Considerations – Heavy Vehicles

 Heavy    Vehicles:
   Have  highest impact on road pavement
   Use of the road – requirement to conduct business,
    also high value of time
   Mostly commercial vehicles – deductions for VAT
    and toll as normal business expense

 SANRAL    is not a financial institution and
  would therefore not be able to extend credit
  without being exposed to the National Credit
  Act, hence no payment terms
 7 day grace period from date of transaction
    Impact of Toll Tariffs upon
    Financial Feasibility
    To illustrate the impact of different toll tariffs upon financial
    viability, three sets of light vehicle tariffs were considered:

                       VLN Tariff                      Tag Tariff
                                                        (-25%)
                       80c per km                     60c per km
                       66c per km*                   49,5c per km*
                       40c per km                     30c per km
*   Gazetted Tariffs

    All discounts remain the same percentages
    Monthly Tolls




   51% of all light vehicle users would pay less than R200 toll per month
   69% of all light vehicle users would pay less than R400 toll per month
   77% of all light vehicle users would pay less than R500 per month.
   A maximum of 2% of all light vehicle users is expected to pay more than
    R1000 per month toll.

*Based on 27 000 interviews
Examples of the Monthly Toll Cost of a
Passenger in a Taxi

 For  22 return trips, as described, between
  Golden Highway (south of Jhb) and Centurion
  via the N1:
   •   R472,18 per month divided amongst 16 passengers
   •   R29,51 per passenger per month
   •   R1,34 per passenger return per day

 N1, M1 and N1 again
  •   R228,94 per month divided amongst 16 passengers
  •   R14,31 per passenger per month

Examples of the Monthly Toll Cost
of a Passenger in a Taxi

 For 22 return trips, as described, between
 Golden Highway (south of Jhb) and Jhb CBD
 via the N1 and M1
  •   R45,71 per month divided amongst 16 passengers
  •   R2,86 per passenger per month
  •   13c per passenger return per day


                                                   66
Economic Study: Inflationary
Effect
 Economic   study - impact on the cost of consumer
  goods determined.
 Only considered the cost of tolling - ignoring all the
  benefits of the freeway upgrades.
 Conclusions w.r.t. “Cost of Living” increases:
    Household   incomes less than R24 365 - 0.31% increase.
     (31c for each R100 spent)
    Household incomes between R24 365 and R55 159 -
     0.29% increase (29c for each R100 spent).
 The scheme will have little impact on the cost of
  consumer goods and will not be inflationary

                                                         67
Traffic Diversion
   Issue of traffic diversion to supporting road network raised by
    local authorities during toll declaration process
   Extensive traffic modelling conducted to demonstrate impact
    during different peak and off peak periods:
       Additional GFIP capacity attracts traffic to network during peak periods
       At night and during weekends – slight increase in traffic on alternative
        “free” network – however, highway bonus not considered
       In terms of the overall alternative Provincial and Metropolitan road
        network, there should be a reduction of ±10% in travelled distance and in
        excess of 20% reduction in travel time on a daily basis as a result of the
        GFIP project.




                                                                            68
How does it work?
   Overhead gantries are fitted with electronic equipment
   When entering the toll area the electronic equipment will:
     – photograph your front and rear number plate;
     – read the E-tag on your vehicle;
     – verify that the specific tag is linked to the specific vehicle
       [number plate and class] and have an account linked to it;
     – Generate a transaction;
     – transactions are rolled up at night;
     – toll fees are deducted from your e-toll account;
     – transactions can be viewed on-line the next day




                                                                    69
SANRAL Principles for ORT

 One account – may include various vehicles
 Central clearing
