Johannesburg - E-tolling and its effects since implementation should be reviewed in Parliament, Democratic Alliance parliamentary leader Mmusi Maimane said on Monday.
The DA would ask the transport portfolio committee to do the review over the coming days, Maimane told reporters in Johannesburg.
"We contend because e-tolls were introduced by enabling legislation passed by the National Assembly, it's the responsibility of Parliament to monitor the impact of its implementation."
This included whether its stated aims and objectives were being met.
While the DA welcomed a recent announcement by Gauteng Premier David Makhura that e-tolling would be reviewed, if the African National Congress was serious about the matter, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters should welcome the review, he said.
Maimane said funding for road construction and infrastructure development should come from the fuel levy, which would negate the further need for e-tolls.
"The e-tolls system is an economic burden that is putting further pressure on the strained finances of South Africans," Maimane said.
