New data has revealed that more than half a million people have been stung by the M4 toll.

E-toll data released under Freedom of Information laws reveal that there have been 523,478 unique users of the widened section of the M4 in NSW, since the toll was reintroduced in August last year.

There are potentially thousands more motorists paying the toll through other e-tag providers like Roam, Linkt or eWAY. 

The new data reveals the top ten postcodes for people that have paid the M4 toll, which include the suburbs of Westmead, Greystanes, Blacktown, Baulkham Hills, Liverpool and Rouse Hill.

Western Sydney motorists commuting daily along the tolled stretch are paying more than $2,275 in tolls a year.

Despite a whopping half a million motorists being hit with the unfair toll, media reports have revealed only three per cent of toll road users are eligible for the government’s “Rego Relief”, in contrast to the thousands of NSW motorists set to benefit when Labor restores the M4 Cashback.

Quotes attributable to NSW Opposition Leader Luke Foley 

“We now know the extent of the pain that the reintroduction of the M4 toll is causing and these figures are staggering.

“Half a million people are being stung by the unfair M4 toll. It’s making their life tougher.

“More relief is needed and that’s why Labor will bring back the M4 Cashback.” 

Quotes attributable to Shadow Treasurer Ryan Park

“At least half a million people have had to pay this toll unfairly since it was reintroduced in August last year. 

“Everyone in the state is being asked to foot the bill for the M4 but only a miniscule group can access Rego Relief, it’s just not fair.

“This data is embarrassing for any Liberal MPs campaigning against the M4 Cashback who have thousands of motorists in their own communities being stung by the M4 toll.”
