Drivers from around the country will have to pay to use e-tolled roads in Gauteng, Sanral said.

Drivers from around the country will have to pay to use e-tolled roads in Gauteng, Sanral said on Friday.

SA National Roads Agency Ltd (Sanral) spokesman Vusi Mona said motorists visiting Gauteng could pay within seven days without registering an e-toll account, or register an account, or purchase a day pass.

"If a road-user does not want to register an e-toll account or purchase a day pass, the e-toll fees may be paid at an e-toll customer service centre by calling the e-toll call centre... or online," he said.

"In this case it will be required that the road user provide his vehicle licence plate number."

The "occasional road user" could buy the day pass from Sanral's website by calling it or visiting a service centre.

"Please note that a day pass cannot be obtained from a retailer," Mona said.

It was reported on Friday that motorists could buy the day pass from retailers like Shoprite, Pick n Pay, or Spar.

For motorcycle riders a day pass would cost R30, for car drivers R50, small heavy vehicles R125, and large heavy vehicles R250.

The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) said on Friday it would not appeal the Supreme Court of Appeal's (SCA) dismissal of its challenge to e-tolls because it could not afford it.

The SCA dismissed Outa's challenge against e-tolls on October 9.
