The SA National Roads Agency Ltd (Sanral) is sitting with more than 1.4 million unsold e-tags, according to Transport Minister Dipuo Peters. “Sanral procured 2 107 000 e-tags over the past three years; [a total of] 1 427 900 have not been allocated,” she said in a written reply to a parliamentary question. The figures imply that only 679 100 e-tags have been sold. Six weeks ago, Sanral chief executive Nazir Ali said 600 000 e-toll tags were in circulation. 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. In her reply to Parliament, Peters said Sanral had spent about R25.3 million between January and October this year on campaigns to encourage the public to buy e-tags. This was in addition to about R11.3m spent in November and December last year.
