CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape High Court will hear an application by the Hout Bay Residents' Association to stop construction of the Chapman's Peak toll plaza on Monday.

The association approached the court in April following a failed attempt a few weeks earlier to halt construction.

The association maintained that the R54 million plaza could not go ahead without Parliament de-proclaiming a portion of land that was part of the Table Mountain National Park.

The earlier application was dismissed as not urgent, with the judge saying the applicants were aware as early as September 2011 that Premier Helen Zille and Western Cape MEC Robin Carlisle intended to continue with the project.

There have been ongoing protests to stop the toll plaza.

Protester, Bronwen Lankers-Byrne, embarked on a 14-day hunger strike.

She sneaked onto the construction site and was eventually arrested and charged with malicious damage to property after spray painting parts of the site.

Another protester, Fiona Hinds, handcuffed herself to a scaffold at the construction site a few months ago.
