E-toll roadblock investigation by Deloitte and Touche

Audit firm Deloitte and Touche has been commissioned to conduct an independent forensic investigation into claims that Sanral held roadblocks to coerce motorists to register for e-tolling.

“In the interests of providing the investigator… with as much information as is possible… [we] call on anyone who was stopped at the roadblock on the Linksfield Road onramp… or at any other place… to [come forward] and report it to the investigator,” Justice Project SA said a statement on Sunday.

The SA National Roads Agency (Sanral) has denied holding the roadblocks in January and has labelled reports about them as a “malicious rumour”.

The rumours had social networks Twitter and Facebook aflutter.

Sanral said at the time: “No staff from either Sanral or its toll operator ETC have conducted any roadblocks as described in the e-mails and social network postings.”

The company said the rumours started after its staff were seen marking roads and that motorists had thought they were being stopped in a Sanral roadblock.
