A Labor government will return millions in tolls a year to Western Sydney motorists with the re-introduction of the Cashback on the M4, delivering a fairer deal for families struggling with the cost of living under the Liberals and Nationals.
Labor’s M4 Cashback for private vehicles will remove the burden for hundreds of thousands of Western Sydney motorists who are now paying up to $4.93 per trip since the Liberals re-introduced the toll on the widened section of the M4 in August 2017.
Western Sydney motorists commuting daily along the tolled stretch are paying more than $2,200 in tolls a year.
Labor’s ‘Lightening the Load M4 Cashback’ will operate on the same rules as the M5 Cashback introduced by the NSW Labor government in 1997.
The toll on the M4 was removed in 2010 by the previous Labor government because the road had been paid for. In August 2017 the Berejiklian Liberal government brought back the toll and almost doubled the amount motorists were paying eight years ago.
Under Labor that will end - Western Sydney has already paid for the road, which now under the Liberals has become a cash cow for other road projects such as Premier Berejiklian’s Northern Beaches mega tunnel.
