Dozens of Cosatu members will on Wednesday march to the Department of Transport in Pretoria over the controversial e-tolling system.
The trade union federation will hand over a memorandum listing reasons why it believes the system in Gauteng should be scrapped.
The members will gather on Proes and Schubart streets at 10am before making their way to the department.
Provincial secretary Dumisani Dakile said Wednesday’s march is part of a build up programme against the tolling system.
“We are readying ourselves for a massive protest taking place on the 30 April.”
From pickets outside Sanral offices to vigils, the federation said it would not back down until the entire toll system was scrapped.
Meanwhile police presence is heavy on Gauteng's highways following a hoax e-mail which said the highways would be blocked as part of e-toll protests.
