EastLink prices changed on 1 July 2018

EastLink tolls changed on 1 July 2018 in line with inflation (CPI +1.9%) and in accordance with the EastLink Concession Deed agreed with the State of Victoria.

However, EastLink continues to offer the lowest tolls in Australia.

For cars, 10 of EastLink’s 13 toll sections are priced at either 42 cents (+1 cent) or 63 cents (+1 cent). A 20% discount applies to each single section car trip on weekdays (excluding the tunnel section), and for each car trip on weekends and public holidays. When the 20% discount applies, the new prices of these 10 toll sections are 33 cents and 51 cents respectively.

EastLink's toll cap for cars has changed from $6.13 to $6.25. On weekends and public holidays, when the 20% discount applies, the toll cap for cars is $4.99.

Some of the fees and amounts that apply to EastLink accounts also changed on 1 July 2018, for example:

  • The Minimum Balance Amount for pre-paid accounts is now $14.10 - account top ups become due when your account balance drops below this level.
  • The Top Up Amount minimum is now $35.
  • The Image Processing Fee is now 30 cents - the image processing fee is charged for each trip made on EastLink using an account but without a valid tag.

The Account Opening Amount (which is a pre-payment on the account balance) has changed from $40 to $55. This amount has not been changed since EastLink opened in 2008. The change this year is simply based on the inflation change since 2008.
