E-tolling begins in Gauteng

Gauteng road users woke up to tolled highways on Tuesday morning after the controversial project finally kicked in after midnight. See pictures.

Cape Town - As e-tolls go live in Gauteng on Tuesday, the website to register appears to be offline.

The South African National Roads Agency Ltd (Sanral) operates the e-tolls and motorists are required to have e-tags fitted to their cars to facilitate billing for the use of the highways.

But on Tuesday as the system went live, the website to register for the system was non-functional.

It is unclear whether the website is down because of an overwhelming response or a hack attack.

According to the Johannesburg metro police, early morning traffic was normal for the area.

The department of transport encouraged people to register for an e-tag as failure would nearly double the cost to use the road.

Motorists can also visit registration centres to register.
