Toll Increases Delayed For 2020

Following high concerns surrounding the suggested increases in toll rates, the Ministry of Transport has announced that toll operators have decided to push back the increases due to the impact of COVID-19 on the economy, locally and internationally.

Jamaicans across the nation voiced their disappointment regarding the suggested price increases, with some outraged that such an increase would even be considered at a time like this with a pandemic.

However, the Ministry notes that TransJamaican Highway Limited and Jamaica North-South Highway Company Limited submitted their applications to vary the toll, as stipulated under their concession agreements, which provides that the concessionaires may apply for an annual increase in toll tariffs and so they did.

Nonetheless, both entities indicated that the new rates, which ordinarily would have become effective come July, will not be implement at this time.
