E-tolling to start on December 3

2013-11-20 10:39

The e-tolling of Gauteng’s highways will begin on December 3, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters has announced.

"Tolling should start then," she told reporters in Pretoria today.

She said those without tags would pay double the amount, and would not benefit from the discounts.

Peters said systems were in place to ensure the system functioned, and the SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) was capable of this responsibility.

Electronic tolling would contribute to the fight against licence plate cloning, and reduce congestion, she said.

Yesterday, Peters said Sanral is sitting with more than 1.4 million unsold e-tags.

In September, President Jacob Zuma signed into law the Transport Laws and Related Matters Amendment Bill, giving Sanral the nod to start e-tolling on Gauteng’s highways.
