The income from Gauteng's tolls will mainly be spent again on collecting toll money in the next two years, according to a report on Monday.

This emerged in a reply by Transport Minister S'bu Ndebele in the National Council of Provinces following a question from the Democratic Alliance, reported The Star newspaper.

More than 70 percent of the Gauteng toll income will be used over the next two years to collect toll fees.

Ndebele said the Gauteng tolls should bring in R3.513 billion in 2012 and 2014. In that same period, it would cost R2.543 billion to collect the tolls.
