The operator of Sydney's toll roads has pulled in more than $200 million in the past three months. Many motorists believe the prices are too high, but the Government says they can always use free roads instead. Toll operator Transurban is reaping the financial rewards. In the three months to September, revenue rose 7.9% in Sydney, compared to a 3.4% rise in the average daily traffic volumes. Transurban has put most of the surge in profits down to an increase in charges for truck drivers. On the M2, the toll operator racked in $68 million in the September quarter. The Lane Cove tunnel pulled in $22 million, the M7 a staggering $96 million in the same period. Motorists travelling on the M5 shelled out $67 million, while on the M1 Eastern Distributor, it cost drivers $33 million to use the toll road. A toll will be reinstated on the M4 from next year as part of the WestConnex project.
