On the toll road you can travel at motorway speeds with safer passing and reduced gradients.
Electronic toll collection uses sophisticated cameras and sensors to capture an image of your vehicles registration plate and assign the correct toll. You can pay by toll account or online for no extra cost. Payment at the self service kiosk and by phone will include an additional payment charge per purchase. Tolls should be paid for in advance but you can pay up to five days later.
When travelling between Auckland and Northland tourists have a choice between using the Northern Gateway Toll Road - an extension of State Highway 1- or one of the free alternatives.
