Cape Town - Toll fares for Chapman's Peak drive in Cape Town will increase from July, the Western Cape transport department said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson Al-Ameen Kafaar said fares would increase by 6.45%.

A light motor vehicle would pay R33 for a one-way trip, while a motorbike would pay R22.

Buses would be charged R335 for a single trip, and minibus taxis with public transport registration R17.

Kafaar said frequent users would receive discounts, with cars paying as little as R6 a trip.

Ambulances, fire trucks and rescue vehicles with the appropriate licences would be exempt from toll fees.

The Western Cape High Court dismissed an application last week to halt the construction of a control building for an upgraded toll plaza on Chapman's Peak.

The Hout Bay Residents' Association and the Habitat Council approached the court in March, claiming no permission had been granted for the control building to be built within the Table Mountain National Park, a world heritage site.
