What is a toll road, and how does tolling work in Australia?

A toll road is a road that charges a fee, or toll, for vehicles to use it. Tolls are typically collected electronically, using a system that automatically charges the toll to the vehicle as it passes through a toll booth or other designated point on the road. Some toll roads also have manual toll booths where drivers can pay the toll in cash or with a credit card.

In Australia, toll roads are very common in states like NSW, QLD and VIC. All of these toll roads use an electronic toll collection system called "Toll Road," which allows drivers to pay their tolls using a prepaid account, a credit or debit card, or a vehicle transponder.

To use a toll road in Australia, drivers can either set up a prepaid account with the toll road operator or purchase a vehicle transponder, which is a small electronic device that can be attached to the windscreen of the vehicle. When a vehicle with a transponder passes through a toll booth, the toll is automatically charged to the prepaid account or the credit card associated with the transponder. Drivers can also pay their tolls online or by phone if they don't have a prepaid account or transponder.

If you're planning to travel on a toll road in Australia, be sure to check the toll road operator's website for information on toll rates, payment options, and any other relevant details.
