THE start of the new financial year also sees the start of higher tolls for southeast Queensland motorists.
As of yesterday, motorists will now pay more to travel on southeast Queensland toll roads, according to the State’s peak motoring body.
RACQ spokesperson Renee Smith said most tolls would increase, in line with inflation.

“This is a timely reminder for motorists to consider whether using a toll road is right for them,” Ms Smith said.
“With most tolls increasing by Brisbane Consumer Price Index (CPI), motorists using toll roads need to weigh up travel time and convenience benefits by doing so.
“The Clem7 increase will be the second rise in six months. Previously, annual toll increases for the tunnel were applied on January 1.”
Toll changes for cars as of 1 July are as follows:
- Clem7 toll will rise from $4.72 to $4.78
- Go Between Bridge toll will increase from $2.88 to $2.98
- Loganlea toll will rise from $1.56 to $1.61
- Paradise Road/Heathwood toll will be $2.65, up from $2.57
- Kuraby toll will increase from $2.43 to $2.51
- Murrarie (Gateway) toll will be $4.25, previously $4.13.
The toll for the Airportlink would not be increasing, following an increase on 17 April.
