Is electronic tolling available on any other toll road in Sydney?
Yes. As well as the M5 South West, your E-way tag can be used on the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Tunnel, Eastern Distributor, M4 and M2 Motorways, Cross City Tunnel and Westlink M7. You will also be able to use your E-way tag to access the Lane Cove Tunnel when it opens later this year.
Can I use my E-way tag in other states?
Yes you can. It can be used in Queensland on the Gateway and Logan Motorways and in Victoria on the Melbourne Citylink.
Why don't you open the east facing ramps at Belmore Road?
Interlink Roads would require greater interest from customers than our surveys currently reveal, for these ramps to be economically viable. If you would like to express your interest in opening east facing ramps at Belmore Road, please send us an email via the Contact page.
Why don't you widen the M5 to three lanes each way?
Provision was made during construction to allow for widening of the road to three lanes in each direction for the full length of the motorway. Current peak traffic levels are around 3,800 vehicles per hour. The capacity of a two-lane carriageway is approximately 4,100 vehicles per hour. At the appropriate time, and subject to fulfilment of all environmental concerns, we expect to be granted approval to widen the road.
What is Cashback?
The NSW Roads & Traffic Authority (RTA) Cashback plan is a NSW government initiative that allows motorists on the M5 and M4 to receive a refund of all tolls they pay on these roads, less GST. To be eligible, your vehicle must be privately registered in NSW.
