The Gauteng ANC Youth League (ANCYL) on Monday said it was still opposed to the controversial Gauteng e-tolling system.
The provincial structure said it will not support any proposals that do not include plans for cheap public transport.
On Tuesday, the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) will head to court in a bid to derail the project, which has received widespread criticism from various groups and motorists.
Gauteng ANCYL Secretary-General Ayanda Kasa-Ntsobi said, “We are not going to support anything that tends to abuse young people. They [the youth] are also affected by the e-tolling.”
Meanwhile, National Treasury on Monday announced that it has asked the court to take part in the upcoming case.
Motorists will have to fork out 30 cents per kilometre to use of the province’s highways.
Earlier this month, the South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) was taken to the Consumer Commission for alleged violations of the Consumer Protection Act.
