E-toll case heads to court

Arguments over the implementation of e-tolling are expected to be heard in the High Court in Pretoria on Monday.

Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) chairman Wayne Duvenhage said they will be arguing why e-tolling should not be implemented and the SA National Roads Agency on the other side would be pushing for the system’s implementation.

E-tolling was scheduled to start on 30 April this year but a court interdict by the High Court delayed the process just two days before it was scheduled to begin.

The court ruled that a full review needed to be carried out before electronic tolling of Gauteng’s highways could be put into effect.

When delivering judgement regarding the interdict at the time, Judge Bill Prinsloo said people were held captive by toll roads.

Under the project, motorists would pay over 35 cents per km to travel on some of Gauteng’s major roads.
