Court to rule on e-tolling

2012-04-28 08:51
Cape Town - The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria is to rule at 11:00 on Saturday on an urgent interdict to stop the implementation of the e-tolling system.

The application was brought by the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa).

There are seven respondents, including the transport department, Sanral and the National Treasury. The Congress of SA Trade Unions has an observer present.

The SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) were also trying to establish what happened.

The implementation of the e-tolling system on Gauteng's highways was postponed for a month by the transport department and Sanral on Thursday.

The announcement was made after the ANC and Cosatu said they would ask the government for a month-long delay.

This was to "finalise regulations following input on regulatory and administrative issues from the public and interested stakeholders.

E-tolling was to have been implemented on 185km of highway in Johannesburg and Tshwane on Monday.
