Gauteng's e-tolls are handled by a different agency, the RTIA explains
All those who have bought e-tags and received monthly e-toll bills should be afforded the opportunity to burn them, says Cosatu in Gauteng.
Court cases involving e-tolling on Gauteng highways have cost the taxpayer over R6-million in legal fees, according to Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan. Meanwhile the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance calls Sanral's e-tag claims as hogwash...
Gauteng motorists not registered for e-tolls should pay their e-toll bills early to avoid being charged more, says the SA National Roads Agency Limited.
Sanral and the Justice Project SA are continuing their war of words in the ongoing spat about the payment of e-tolls on Gauteng's highways.
Justice Project SA has lashed out at national roads agency Sanral's latest "threat against motorists", saying it shows a scant understanding of e-tolling processes.
The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance says Sanral is fabricating its e-tag sales to more than double what they are.
DA supporters have asked the public to vote against the ANC government under President Jacob Zuma in the 2014 elections to protest against e-tolling.
A group of protesters say Sanral promised to exempt disabled people from e-tolls but failed to make proper legal provision for this, according to a report.
Transport Minister Dipuo Peters has expressed disappointment with some leaders' refusal to embrace e-tolls and accept the rule of the law.
Two overseas companies have earned over R550m for providing e-tags to and printing and distributing invoices for South Africa’s loss-making e-toll system, Parliament hears.
Gauteng drivers owe more than a half-billion rand in e-tolls since the system started in 2013, says transport minister Dipuo Peters. And R54-million has gone on "collection of debt".
The SA National Roads Agency Limited has challenged Outa's claim that motorists are not buying e-tags.
"It would be downright stupid of us to lie about this," said Sanral CEO Nazir Alli in response to claims that the toll-road company told porkies about the number of e-tags issued.
The failure to pay toll fees regardless of whether an invoice is issued or not is against the law, says the SA National Roads Agency Limited.
Sanral says it has no reason to fabricate e-tag sales figures, but Outa is challenging the agency to make its data available to the public.
The National Roads Agency says nearly 900 000 e-tags have been issued to motorists in Gauteng and implementation has gone according to plan.
Cosatu-affiliated unions in the Post Office and Gauteng metro police have urged their members to help motorists against e-tolling in direct and indirect ways.
The 14 tollgates in KZN, through a phased approach beginning with the Mooi River toll plaza on the N3, will be introducing the e-tag facility.
Cosatu vows to fight e-tolls until government listens to the people, saying the roll-out is a clear demonstration of cadres who believe they can do as they wish.
