The Australian Toll Market
The Australian Toll Market has a long history. The first main roads in NSW were built in the early 1800s and were financed by toll booths. Since 2013 all toll roads have operated using Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) to detect and collect fees from drivers.
In 2016 there were 16 different toll roads operating across three states of Australia in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. Eight tag issuers service these roads, providing customers with Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) tags. DSRC tags are fitted to vehicles and provide access
to travel on toll roads within Australia.
